Jim Croce - Songs


Jim Croce (January 10, 1943 - September 20, 1973) was a highly acclaimed folk/rock singer-songwriter who became famous during the early 1970s. Best known for the swaggering "Bad, Bad Leroy Brown" and the more introspective "Time In A Bottle," which both topped the charts in 1973, other big hits include "You Don't Mess Around With Jim" (1972), "Operator (That's Not The Way It Feels)" (1972), "I Got A Name" (1973), and "I'll Have To Say I Love You In A Song" (1974).

Jim Croce's career and life were tragically cut short at age 30 in an airplane crash, and his music continued to chart following his death through 1976. He was inducted posthumously into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1990, and in 2022, a Pennsylvania Historical Marker in his honor was placed outside his farmhouse in Lyndell.
