Harry Chapin (December 7, 1942 – July 16, 1981) was an American singer and songwriter. Chapin's debut album, Heads and Tales (1972), was a success thanks to the single "Taxi". His follow-up album, Sniper and Other Love Songs, was less successful; but his third, Short Stories, was a major success. Verities & Balderdash, released soon after, was even more successful, bolstered by the chart-topping hit single "Cat's in the Cradle". He also wrote and performed a Broadway musical, The Night That Made America Famous.

Total plays on over the last 6 months
    My child arrived just the other day
    He came to the world in the usual way
    But there were planes to catch, and bills to pay
    He learned to walk while I was away
    And he was talking 'fore I knew it, and as he grew
    Cat's in the Cradle  -  674,676 plays
    It was raining hard in 'Frisco
    I needed one more fare to make my night
    A lady up ahead waved to flag me down
    She got in at the light
    Oh, where you going to, my lady blue

    I come fresh from the street
    Fast on my feet, kinda lean and lazy
    Not much meat on my bones, and a whole lot alone
    And more than a little bit crazy
    The old six string was all I had
    I Wanna Learn A Love Song  -  32,294 plays
    I'm a tangled up puppet,
    Spinning round in knots,
    And the more I see what I used to be,
    The less of you I've got.
    There was a time that you curled up in my lap; like a child
