Hey guys welcome back to another article of now playing!

The record I would like to talk about is Tea for the Tillerman by Cat Stevens. It's a kind of strange title to name an album but I think you can find quite an explanation listening to the lyrics of the song named after the title. It seems almost an ancient ballad and the song it's strange since it's very short and played by piano when Cat Stevens is usually known for his guitar. But let's move on with the songs I liked the most.

The first one is Peace Train. I discovered it because it was the soundtrack in a momentous moment in my favorite tv series. I don't know... when I listen to this song I want to be a better person. It makes me feel like helping everybody and supporting everyone and spreading love around! It talks about the feeling that something great is coming, that positive change is about to come in the world and tells everyone to join to the Peace Train with all their friends. Sometimes I really hope this song had the same impact on other people as it has on me. We could prevent murder or theft just by playing this!

The second one is wild world. Sometimes songs catch your attention cause of the lyrics but sometimes is the music that makes the difference like in this case. To be honest I don't even know what the lyrics says but I just LOVE the guitar in it. It is awesome how all Cat Stevens' songs are musically perfect. You can't help but dance to this jam.

That's it for now, see you next time
