R. Dean Taylor (born Richard Dean Taylor, 11 May 1939, Toronto, Ontario, Canada) is a Canadian singer, most famous as a recording artist, songwriter and record producer for Motown Records company during the 1960s and 1970s. According to Jason Ankeny, Taylor "remains one of the most underrated acts ever to record under the Motown aegis." As a singer, American audiences know him best for his 1970 Billboard Top 5 "story song" about an Indiana murder fugitive that featured police sirens in the intro and an outro that included more sirens and a police officer warning the fugitive that he was surrounded and to give himself up. The single hit #1 in Taylor's native Canada. He is at least as well known in the UK for his hits "Gotta See Jane" and "There's a Ghost in My House".
