Listening to Cat Stevens the whole of y’day was solacing. A Deep voice, lonely acoustic guitar strums and subtle harmony characterized Cat Stevens’ music. So if you like such a setting, he is the master-blaster.
This blog has already become a collection of youtube bookmarks. Adding to it, here is one more that influenced my late teen/early twenties(now that I have moved away from it). This song has much more to it than just Cat’s voice. The lyrics, in form of a dialogue between a father and son reveals a father’s remarks on his life behind him and for the son, the life ahead of him. Such philosophy!

The depth in his voice always haunts… Sad that he cut short his career…
Goes by the name yusuf islam…songs are still magical….
Gyanban – Just a small correction : He has been going by the name Yusuf since 1977 that is 32 years..
LG : If Yusuf had read this blog post, he may not have relished his being still called Cat Stevens.. It is like using the purvashrama name to refer to a sanyasin.. like Swaminathan for our late maha periyavar
