Subject: Rediscover Old Masters (eg, Cat Stevens)
At my spectacular aunt's funeral, some of the family sang Morning Has Broken, most beautifully I may add, at National Cathedral.
I have been moved to rediscover the old Cat Stevens from my adolescence - Tea for the Tillerman, Mona Bone Jakon, Buddha and the Chocolate Box, Catch Bull at 4, and the soundtrack to Harold and Maude. Which last I didn't actually encounter till early adulthood, but the only song I didn't already know was If You Want To Sing Out, Sing Out.
Boy, has that music aged gracefully.
There is a bagel place in town voted Most likely to play a song you're completely forgotten about, yet still remember all the words to.
That is kind of how I feel about Cat Stevens.
Whom have you rediscovered lately is one question, and havent's his lyrics stood the test of time is another.
I looked for rediscovery threads and didn't see any, and none of the many Cat Stevens threads were on point.
