Idiom/Cliche Before and After

The following phrases are disguised versions of the answer phrases. Each answer phrase is a pair of idioms or cliches which have been linked together. They have been linked together in that the last word of the "before" idiom/cliche is shared by (i.e. is the same as) the first word of the "after" idiom/cliche.

For example, the clue phrase "it equates to the present moment or at no time a period of boredom" could be used to disguise the two idioms:
"it's now or never" (the "before" idiom), and
"never a dull moment" (the "after" idiom) linked together by the common word "never" giving the answer phrase "it's now or never a dull moment".


Decipher each of the following clue phrases in order to determine the answer ("before and after") phrase:

1. confront the audible composition from the perspective of one's hearing organs
2. a flying creature in one's palm above this same applicable body part when it's clenched
3. a couple of craniums are superior to a single occurrence of the multiple rotations of the Earth upon its axis of which we are in the midst
4. within a very narrow margin of temporal duration takes to the air (while one is experiencing amusement)
5. preferably tardy as opposed to at no time articulate at no time

Hint:

The linking word (the word in common) joining each idiom/cliche pair is as follows:

1. music
2. hand
3. one
4. time
5. never
