    Most white men generally get emotional when they are blindsided on a Tuesday afternoon while standing on line for rogaine in Rite-Aid and the song "Cats in the Cradle" begins to spew from the ceiling speakers. In fact. that is often the cue to find the nearest exit as soon as possible so you don't look like a big baby while buying hair growth product. What shocks and annoys me is the arrogance behind both Jon and Gary's alleged confusion as to why the song affects Sal's emotions so much. The truth is that white men who claim no emotional connection to this song are the same white men who claim tot have never sampled their own ejaculate....LIARS!

    Go to 5:00 plz

    Man, the 70s produced a TON of those depressing ass songs! I remember those cheesy AM Gold! CD box sets they used to peddle on TV, and half of them made you wanna jump out of a window from the blues they'd bring on:

    Seasons in the Sun
    Wildfire
    Alone Again, Naturally
    Cats in the Cradle

    Cats in the Cradle doesn't make me sad at all - the message of the song is pay attention to your kids or one day they won't pay attention to you.

    The song that gets me? Abraham Martin & John by Dion.

    It will depress me if my kids turn out like the kid in the song.They are under 2 yrs old and I give them tons of love and attention, and will do so for the rest of my life, which isn`t more than 20 yrs I think?

    No guarantees, of course, but if you give your kids tons of love and affection when they are little and they grow up with that, they will repay you in kind in the end. But if you ignore them, like Ben Stern ALLEGEDLY did, they will end up self-centered assholes like Howard.

    Booey talked openly about how he cried too when listening to that song today on the wrap up show. Something like they should both listen to the songs that make them emotional, then see who cries first.

    I'm sure Sinn Fein really thought twice because of Cat Stevens...

    Goddamn, man.

    I was going through a heartbreaking divorce last year, and this fucking song took me to the brink every time I heard it. I must've bawled buckets. And my dad died in 2006 so the last verse really crushes me because he's the one person I wish would've been around last year to help me through it all.
