0705. Cat Stevens
Tea For The Tillerman
Long before finding religion and abandoning music (only to return again, some decades later), Cat Stevens became huge with this, his fourth, album about love, family and ...transcending the mortal coil?
And to follow up Hard Headed Woman, the track about wanting a
partner who run things, with the ultimate passive-aggressive
ode to an ex, Wild World, is either complete douchebaggery or
a conscious choice to illustrate the fickleness of the human
But as the album progresses, there's a whole lot more of the condecending attitude, like that arrogant dad in Father And Son.
Another proof that you really should avoid analyzing to the lyrics of some good songs.
