Best Jim Croce Songs

Jim Croce was an underrated musician. I just want to honor him with a list of his best songs.

The Top Ten

1 Operator (That's Not the Way It Feels) Operator (That's Not the Way It Feels)

Just gives me goose bumps each and every time I hear it. Never gets old. The best guitar work on any Croce song other than maybe 'I'll have to say I Love you in song'

I saw a live version of this song on Saturday Night Live not long after the plane crash. Jim and Maury alone on the stage. Man, did that ever move me to tears.

Operator well could you help me place this call? You see the number on the matchbook is old and faded

Easily the best song, lyrically brilliant, best song ever about lost love

2 I Got a Name I Got a Name

'I Got a Name' is a beautiful, thought-provoking song. When I was listening to it for the time, Jim Croce's words pierced my heart, and I knew that they will stay there for a long time.

The song of life. Enough said. Should be #1

One of the most meaningful songs I've ever heard.

3 Time In a Bottle Time In a Bottle

Shame on me! I came to know about this song after watching Days of Future Past and it has been on repeat in my player since then.

This song was a love masterpiece.

Simply beautiful. I have a dry soul. This song finds tears from deep within and brings them out.

I also got to know about this song after watching days of future past
