Talk about leaving at the top of your game, Cat sure did. I had all his albums and loved them all.

Love it but makes me sad too - hits too close to home.

One of the few songs that has always - always - made me cry. First as a teen, and now as a father.

And then I revel in my humanness. Or maybe it's relief.

Ironic that much of history has been filled with art for the glory of God, yet somehow Cat gave up art for the glory of God. Unfair to be mad at him after leaving us this, but I still am a bit.

I love the Johnny Cash and Fiona Apple cover of this song. You should play it some time Bill :)

This album is on my top 10 of all time list. Right along side Exile on Main Street.

Stop listening as you like but Cat/Yusuf has repeatedly denied calling for Rushdie's head.  He said his comments were simply an interpretation of Islamic Law (or as a bad joke gone awry).  Sort of like some would tell you that the Bible says homosexuals are an abomination.  All open to interpretation but.... doesn't sound like a great reason to stop listening to such a great musician.

Wow. My dad played this a lot when my brother and i were boys in the 70's.

Now i have 2 boys.

This now pulls on my heartstrings from both directions.

Love, love, love this song.

Any Cat Stevens makes me happy. Would love to go see him play, now that he's doing a little tour (the first time I feel like he's sort of back to "ok, I'm the Yusuf Cat".  However, tickets are being scalped in multiple hundreds..  just soo wrong.

Yes, I saw him live in the 60's (ages me), and he was wonderful.  I wonder (without much mystery) why he has ben so marginalized for the past forty years.

I used to listen to this song on a loop, knowing I needed to come out to my dad, but not knowing how.  I always felt Stevens was speaking directly to me when he sung this, especially, "All the times that I cried, keeping all the things I knew inside.  It's hard, but it's harder to ignore it."  Now "old," and out, I am indeed happy.

Never heard this song on RP before.  Stopped me in my tracks. 

 
Thank you for sharing your experience. Peace.
