Love Songs We Never Want to Hear Again (9)

Jim Croce, “Time in a Bottle”

A sugar-crusted, plinky-plonky slow waltz in which the singer would like to “save every day/’til Eternity passes away/just to spend them with you” – and makes you feel that eternity crawling as you wait for the song to end. Unlike Croce’s “I’ve Got a Name,” which received a new lease on life in Django Unchained, not even Tarantino could redeem this one.
