It’s not exactly a hidden gem or anything, but it’s been stuck in my head all week, so without further adieu your song of the week is:
Wild World – Cat Stevens
Cat Stevens is possibly my favorite artist of all time. It’s a cliché, but his songs really make you want to smile and cry at the same time. Maybe it’s just me, but although his staple is mellow music and whimsical tunes, there’s always an intense, mournful emotion simmering under the surface.
Of course, not gonna lie, I haven’t listened to any of his recent stuff as ‘Yusuf Islam’, but his old music is beautiful enough to listen to for a lifetime.
Some other Cat favorites are ‘The Wind’, ‘Sad Lisa’, and of course, ‘Peace Train’!!
