A bittersweet entry from a reader:
Thank you for creating and curating this list of parenthood songs; my wife and I love it! (Also, Track of the Day is great for this non-musical pleb : )
Check out Everclear’s “Father of Mine” and Harry Chapin’s “Cats in the Cradle.” Both songs slay me … but hey, I’ve got absentee-dad issues. Since I’m so damn determined to break the cycle with my two miraculous sons, these songs hit me HARD. I have to spend several minutes afterwards just collecting my shit.
