How many songs do you know that use the word “contingencies” in their lyrics?
Well, I happen to know of one. And, it just so happens its by one of my all time favorite performers, Harry Chapin – who met up with his own disaster in 1981.
I remember the first time I heard this song, a long time ago, I thought to myself, “Wow, he’s talking about contingency planning!” And, just like us, nobody cares to listen to him. I could relate.
I think this makes for a great theme song for the business continuity, disaster recovery planner – except for the part where he dies saving the town.
