Harry Chapin (19421981) was an American [[FolkMusic folk rock]] artist and philanthropist in the 1970s and early '80s, and creator of such famous songs as "Cat's in the Cradle" and "Taxi." He was killed in 1981 in a traffic accident while on his way to a free concert he was giving, although he may have already been dead; the autopsy and his driving patterns, which caused the accident, are consistent with him having suffered a heart attack behind the wheel.

He also performed the "part" of Mr. Tanner, singing the chorus of "O Holy Night" in his natural baritone, overlapping Harry's singing of the actual chorus to "Mr. tanner".

** During live performances of ''Circle'', Harry would insist that everyone from other members of the band all the way to the road crew sing a stanza of the song, partly as a novel way to showcase the people who made his band operate, and also to encourage AudienceParticipation, insisting that anyone and everyone is able to sing the song.
