Wiki

"Time in a Bottle" is a posthumous Billboard Hot 100 number-one hit for singer-songwriter Jim Croce. The song reached the top spot on the US chart at the end of December 1973, three months after his death in a plane crash. At the same time, it was a number-one hit on the Billboard Easy Listening chart.[1]

The song was originally written for Croce's son, A.J., and appeared on his first album in 1972, You Don't Mess Around with Jim. The following year Croce would shoot to fame with his hit single "Bad Bad Leroy Brown", just months before the September 20 plane crash. Time in a Bottle was later used as the title for a compilation album of Croce's love songs.

The song started receiving widespread airplay in September 1973, after it was featured over the end credits of the ABC TV movie, She Lives!, starring Desi Arnaz Jr. and Season Hubley.
