Wake Up Song of the Day:     Jim Croce “Time in a Bottle”.    It’s the Friday Flashback Song!   We “Flash Back” in 10-20-30-40-50-60-70 year increments to find Number One Songs at this time that are still remembered today, along with the artists and groups that perform.   Or, Number One Songs that are long forgotten, along with the artists and groups that perform.   Jim wrote the lyrics after his wife, Ingrid, told him she was pregnant in December 1970.    It appeared on Croce’s 1972 album “You Don’t Mess Around with Jim” and was featured in the 1973 ABC made-for-television movie “She Lives!”   After he was killed in a plane crash in September 1973, the song was aired frequently on radio, and demand for a single release built.   “Time in a Bottle” became Croce’s second and final track to reach #1, spending two weeks at the top spot, the last week of 1973 and the first week of 1974.
