Jennihair Sun from RamonaFirst time I heard this I dropped in love, and also the older I obtained the even more those lyrics reminded me of Me. Quite frequently what I say doesn"t come out appropriate so I just compose my feeling out. Loved Jim and Murry" guitars, don"t understand what they were. Wish I can have watched Jim in person and told him thanks.Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn February 2fourth 1974, "I"ll Have To Say I Love You In A Song" by Jim Croce entered Billboard"s Hot Top 100 chart at position #73; and also on April 2first it peaked at #9 (for 1 week) and invested 14 weeks on the Top 100...And on the very same day it reached #9 on the Top 100 it peaked at #1 (for 1 week) on Billboard"s Adult Conshort-lived Tracks chart...In his brief four year recording career (1972 - 1976) he had ten records on the Top 100; with five of them making the Top 10 and also two reaching #1 ("Bad, Bad Leroy Brown" for 2 weeks and also "Time In A Bottle" for 2 weeks)...May he R.I.P. (1943 - 1973).Frank from Venezuela, VenezuelaI love the understanding gave here...Jim Corce sings about extremely individual matters we all deserve to relate to bereason we have actually lived them. Thank you!Carolyn from Knoville, TnWhat a lovely story...and what a lovely song! It"s been a favorite of mine given that I initially heard it on the radio "back in the day".Meg from Blahblahblah, LaHe passed away in great ole Louisiana... RIPMeg from Blahblahblah, LaBeautiful song composed by a beautiful guy. It"s an excellent love song.Ron from Milwaukee, WiJim Croce died on September 20 ,1973 and not on September 29, 1973 as proclaimed above.Frank from Westminster, ScWhat an excellent understanding Ingrid provides! I often wondered whether Croce himself oversaw 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 can be complete of soup.see more comments
