    Maybe you should list your top 10 songs so we can compare? I think it is pretty hard to make a top 10 songs of all time because there are so many different genres. An example of probably of few of my favorite songs are Cash's Hurt, IZ's Over the Rainbow, and Hendrix's Over the Watchtower.

    I agree it is a great song but I don't know if I would put it in my top 10.

    Great song. Too bad Croce died so young.

    Re: Thoughts on Jim Croce's Operator

    Tunes like "Operator" make me melancholy. Old enough to have been there and it zaps you right back to being a kid.

    Too bad Jim got in the plane that night. One dang tree within 500 yards on the airfield and the pilot hits it.

    Re: Thoughts on Jim Croce's Operator

    I actually like "I Got a Name" even more. I didn't realize he was so young when he died- looked older than his years I guess. He had quite a career already for a 30 year-old.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    Croce was great, but operator isn't top 10.

    That is a good one. Walking Back to Georgia, Rapid Roy, Rollerderby Queen, he made some good music.

    His wife operates a restaurant/bar under his name in San Diego, good times.
