My favorite song of all time has to be “Taxi” by Harry Chapin. For a lot of reasons. NOT because it was his best song – it was not, not in my opinion.
But I have an affinity with the song that is hard to describe. I love the fact that it is a storyteller, telling a great story.
I love that it’s a love story that goes awry – I’ve had my experience with those 🙂
I also love that years and years later the story comes true – the fairytales are fulfilled.
And Harry Chapin dies young – never knowing how he affected people like me. Probably not knowing people like me existed.
My favorite Harry Chapin song is one you’ve probably never heard.
Harry didn’t live long enough to record a ton of songs… so what do you think my favorite Chapin song is? 1,000 worthless points to whoever gets it right.
Some of you know me well enough to guess it. The rest of you need to work harder and read some old posts.
I really don’t think this will be that hard though.
