Now Showing: "Time in a Bottle" by The Muppets

Since my earlier Jim Croce post was so well-received (thanks Tank!), and since I simply cannot resist The Muppets, I thought what the heck? Why not do another one?

This has to have been the first time I ever heard this song, and I still find it a very moving performance, considering that it stars a lump of foam. Of course, given what most actors are like nowadays...

Time in a Bottle was performed (by Jim Henson himself) on Episode 207 of The Muppet Show - an episode first aired in 1977. No doubt Croce's early, tragic death (on this day in 1973) gives the song an even greater poignance...
