It was the late fall / early winter of 1975 when I became familiar with “Cats In The Cradle.” I was in the eighth grade and turned 14 in December, 1974.

That song brings back a lot of cool memories for me; growing up, dealing with raging hormones, the crushes I had on a special girl, and the insecurities of measuring up.

That song, even though I didn’t pay attention to the lyrics, engraved its message in my sub-conscience mind.

It has a very accurate portrayal of truth and is very well written, well-done and well-sung. Thanks Harry…..
