There is something about Cat Stevens...

There is something about the music of Cat Stevens that gives me both joy and sadness at the same time. It's weird because I can't really say I'm a big "fan" because I don't know his music by heart but I am casually familiar with him. However, there is something in his voice that makes me feel the emotions of the song. I'm not sure if it's his tone or how the melody is composed but the bottle line is I feel it. To me, this happens when music transcends the senses and becomes a sort of spiritual experience. Talk to artists and many will tell you that their "art" feels to be guided by devine forces; by a soul. Without trying to sound too metaphysical, I tend to agree with that sentiment. They key is being in tune with the devine when it speaks to you.


  1. I also dig Cat Stevens' tunes.
    I used to be an usher at the Forum. Buddy of mine threw the Cat man out of concert. It seems Cat Stevens slapped him when he told him he was sitting in the wroing seat.
    Still, the dude cranked out some sublime tunes...

  2. Didn't know Cat had a temper on him.
