TIME IN A BOTTLE
Eddy McManus has truly done justice to the timeless classic “Time in a Bottle” with his heartfelt and caring performance. Originally written by the talented singer-songwriter Jim Croce, this song holds a special place in the hearts of many due to its beautiful lyrics and the touching story behind its creation.
As the story goes, Croce wrote the lyrics for “Time in a Bottle” after his wife Ingrid told him she was pregnant in December 1970. The song went on to appear on Croce’s debut album, You Don’t Mess Around with Jim, and was featured in the made-for-television movie She Lives! Tragically, Croce was killed in a plane crash in September 1973, but the song continued to air frequently on the radio and demand for a single release grew. The single of “Time in a Bottle” eventually became Croce’s second and final track to reach number 1 in the United States.
The lyrics of “Time in a Bottle” are truly magical, as they explore the idea of saving time and treasuring every moment with the ones we love. Eddy McManus sings these lyrics with such sweetness and care, truly bringing the song to life in a way that touches the hearts of listeners.
