Sanity Sunday- The Music of Cat Stevens

by Nomad

For anybody who came of age around the early 1970s, the name Cat Stevens is bound to be wrapped up with quite a few personal memories. (The same is true for singer/songwriters like James Taylor, Carole King and many others.)

Regardless of whether you agree or disagree with his religious or political opinions, his music still sounds as fresh as it did back in that time.

This Sanity Sunday post offers four of Cat Steven's songs.

Hard-Headed Woman

The next song is Oh, Very Young. Here's an excerpt of the superb lyrics.

Oh very young, what will you leave us this time?
You're only dancin' on this earth for a short while
And though your dreams may toss and turn you now
They will vanish away like your dads best jeans
Denim blue, faded up to the sky
And though you want them to last forever
You know they never will
(You know they never will)
And the patches make the goodbye harder still.

This song, Where Do The Children Play? seems fitting for our times.

And finally, here's one of Cat Stevens' most famous hits, Wild World.

Hope you enjoyed that. Have a great Sunday.
