#songoftheday: Cat Stevens – Two Fine People

I’m usually not a big fan of “Greatest Hits” albums.  On one hand, they make for an accessible intro to any given band/artist.  On the other, they can take a song out of the context of the original album, and really diminish it’s effect.

Cat Stevens’ first greatest hits album gets a pass because it brings something new to the table.  Specifically, this great song.

 

 

#songoftheday: Cat Stevens – Father and Son

Sometimes you associate a song with a particularly emotional time or moment in your life, and anytime you hear it played, you’re right back in that moment. Happy or sad, those feelings can hit you pretty hard, and seem like they’re coming out nowhere.

This is one of the few songs that’s actually made me tear up on it’s own merits.
