Jim Croce - It Doesn't Have To Be That Way

Some songs are more beautiful than others, and Jim Croce's "It Doesn't Have To Be This Way" is more beautiful than most. The amazing American singer/songwriter who died in a plane crash only 30 years old in 1973 wrote some seriously good tunes in his time, and his Christmas song "It Doesn't Have To Be That Way" (1973) is one of the very best. Lines like "Down the windy winter avenues, there walks a lonely man" evokes some really nice images, sad as they are. This is songwriting at its best.
