RIPMeg from Blahblahblah, LaBeautiful song created by a beautiful man. It"s an excellent love song.Ron from Milwaukee, WiJim Croce passed away on September 20 ,1973 and not on September 29, 1973 as declared above.Frank from Westminster, ScWhat a good insight Ingrid provides! I regularly wondered whether Croce himself supervised the finished product of this song. The echoing background vocals seem to be tacked on, as if to fill out an uncompleted song. Of course, I might be full of soup.view more comments
