American songwriter Harry Chapin (who incidentally graduated from my high school and spoke at my graduation) wrote the tune "Cat's in the Cradle." It first appeared on his 1974 album "Verities & Balderdash." It was by far his highest charting song. Driving to a gig on 16 July 1981, he died in an auto accident on the Long Island Expressway.
