Best Jim Croce SongsJim Croce was an underrated musician. I just want to honor him with a list of his best songs.
The Top Ten
'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.
I cried the first time I heard this when it was first introduced to me in 2016. I felt every word; lived every wonderful emotion. What an incredible storyteller he is. - Britgirl
This song was a love masterpiece.
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.
Simply beautiful. I have a dry soul. This song finds tears from deep within and brings them out.
What song better captures the idea of life? A boy's girlfriend leaves him, but he still feels like calling her to see how she is. While he what's for the call to go through he thinks about life and decides to move on.
God bless Jim Croce, a man whose life ended before he was halfway there. I hope he found the time stuck up in that bottle of photographs and memories.
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
Love this song because it tells a story that is why I like Jim because on his songs he tells stories.
If the guitar groove doesn't move you, what can? Beautiful melody; lyrics are meaningful as ever even today.
This is the best song, with its powerful emotions, and beautiful strings.
A good pick me up song
Listen to it...it deserves a spot.
Excellent song... would be terribly snubbed if not at least listed. Hauntingly beautiful, but strays from the super short timing present in Croce's other songs, as it clocks in at nearly 4 minutes long. Lyrics are very well-thought-out.
This is such a beautiful song. It deserves to be on this list.
