Best Harry Chapin Songs


The Top Ten

1 Taxi
2 Cat's In the Cradle

A really great song. I first heard of this while playing Grand Theft Auto V.

3 A Better Place to Be
4 Mr. Tanner
5 There Only Was One Choice

This story deserves to be heard. So personal yet with a strong universal theme. The stuff "great American novels" are made of.
A musician's journey through life - hopeful dreams, adventures, disillusionment, renewal.
Ah well, even if we are merely a "dance band on the Titanic" we may as well go down singing. - Billyv

6 Sequel

A revisit in later years to the story begun in Taxi. And another brilliant, worthy endeavor. - Billyv
