Happy heavenly birthday to singer-songwriter Harry Chapin, who would be 78 years old today. When he died in 1981 in a car crash, I remember that my manager was very upset, and he said his wife was beside herself, she was so upset. I wasn’t anywhere as broken up by the news, but I was still sad, because I knew we had lost a great talent. His first hit, "Taxi," was released in 1972, and although it was almost seven minutes long, enough radio stations played it and enough records were sold that it reached the Top 40 in the US (#24) and the Top 5 (#5) in Canada. Eight years later in 1980, Harry recorded "Sequel," which followed up on taxi driver Harry and housewife Sue ten years later. It reached #23 on the Hot 100 that year. YouTube user J. G. Soriano did an expert job of putting both songs together so that one runs into the other almost seamlessly.
