Jim Croce oughta be 67 today.
Two videos. First, probably my favorite of his songs, Dreamin' Again. I love the lyric:
I'm not the same
Can you blame me?
Is it hard to understand?
I can't forget
You can't change me
I am not that kind of man
Typically Crocian conceit. Like the snake in the parable, none of us can really escape our natures, can we?
The second, another favorite, Operator.
Jim was hardly a man for our time. He was often bombastic, and unabashedly sentimental.
God bless and keep your constant soul, Jim.
