Now for something a little less controversial I hope I worked up a very simple thing on banjo years ago for this wonderful song by Jim Croce, and just recently came across this very nice YouTube version of Glen Campbell performing the song in So I pulled this out from the dark recesses of my mind and decided to pick along with Glen. At the end of my video I give a link to the YouTube video I'm picking along with.
Time in a Bottle ~ Jim Croce ~ Lyrics
The Number Ones. Album Of The Week. All these previously unimagined future possibilities start to open up.
Croce wrote the lyrics after his wife Ingrid told him she was pregnant, in December ABC originally did not intend to release the song as a single; but when Croce was killed in a plane crash in September , its lyrics, dealing with mortality and the wish to have more time, had additional resonance. The song subsequently received a large amount of airplay as an album track and demand for a single release built.
September 25, by Sonya Alexander. Jim Croce's music was pure poetry. One of the songs from that record, "Time in a Bottle," took on extra meaning after his untimely death. The haunting song deals with cherishing time and facing mortality; the message gained more weight after his passing. A true wordsmith, his lyrics touched on. They also exhibit the inherent talent of the gone-to-soon troubadour. The melancholy, beautiful song encapsulates a decade of bittersweet optimism and dreams deferred.
