As per a comment I received yesterday, I've decided that my new blog title will be "AMD-AM". Sounds like a "weiner" to me, what do you think?
Anyhoo, tonights selection is a bit of a tragic story. It's by Jim Croce, a very talented young man whose life was snatched from him far too early, depriving us all of many more years of excellent music. This tune is another that has always brought a tear to my eye for the simple reason that it turned out to be so prophetic, recorded only a short time before he was killed in a horrible plane crash. I give you:

Jim Croce
“Time in a Bottle”


If I could save time in a bottle,
The first thing that I'd like to do
Is to save everyday till eternity passes away
Just to spend them with you.
If I could make days last forever,
If words could make wishes come true,
I'd save everyday like a treasure and then,
Again, I would spend them with you.

But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you wanna do
Once you find them.
I've looked around enough to know
You're the one I wanna go through time with

If I had a box just for wishes
And dreams that had never come true,
The box would be empty except for the memory of how
They were answered by you.

But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you wanna do
Once you find them.
I've looked around enough to know
You're the one I wanna go through time with.

Good ol Jim.....but should this be AMD-AM? My mom never had a FM radio until later so most of these I heard on AM...not till much later that I had a FM radio.....no static at all....

Well, this song certainly isn't helping to get me out of the funky mood I seem to be in tonight...

Don't get me wrong. I'm not complaining. Just seems to be that every song that plays in my head seems to be making the tears well up tonight.

i'm a big jim fan had his whole collection and it burnt up in a car.never could replace all of it.he was a great songwriter and performer.not only was he taken young he was treated wrong by the music business.he made very little money and had just started to regroup when he was killed.

He was not a very lucky man. How he died is that the pilot of the plane he was in had a heart attack right after take off. Also, though some of Croce's stuff sounds very hayseed, he was from Philadelphia. I always felt that he and Frank Zappa had more than a passing resemblance. Though unconfirmed, he never sold out a concert hall where he headlined.

It's interesting that this one and the last one I commented on (Sister Golden Hair) were both songs my sister really liked, so they remind me of her *sniffle*. Good songs, though - nothing wrong with a sentimental memory here and there :)
