I say nothing but good things about these songs, or I would not have made the stations. How is that being rude? That's what someone said, that I was rude. I only make stations I like. Jim Croche is one of the best singer/songw r i t e r . Was that rude? Feeling are hurt. :'( :'( :'(

"I think about a love that I thought would save me." Beautiful in it's simplicity, this song is a perennial favorite.

Jim holds a big place in my life as inspiration for learning to play guitar and sing songs written by one of the all time best. Right up there with Gordon Lightfoot.

I was a teenager when I heard this song and my father had just passed away and this helped me cope with life so thank you Jim Croce for your help

The 70s had some terrific songwriters. Jim Croce, John Denver, Harry Chapin, Carly Simon. Man that is some takent

And I am not frightened of dying, any time will do, I
don't mind. Why should I be frightened of dying?
There's no reason for it, you've gotta go sometime.

If you can hear this whispering you are dying.

I never said I was frightened of dying.

Such a great song. Jim was such a great story teller in his music. Sadly missing such talent in today's time. What could have been.....

We were only blessed with this mans talent for a very short, way too short time. He was truly amazing. Listen to the guitar, just amazing. The harmony on the chorus is priceless. Before my time but so thankful I was blessed with the ear to hear true music like this.
