    Ride On The Peace Train

    Moon Shadow

    Love the Cat, and all of his work and that he was on the soundtrack for the movie "Harold and Maude"  therefore the reason  I named my dog Moon Shadow.

    Enjoy His Voice and Songs

    I'm closer to his generation so I understand him, I think.  I don't agree with his religious ideas but that's OK.  I can separate a person from their beliefs.   Their actions count with me though.

    These Songs Had a Profound Impact On Me.

    This first song describes me and how I feel perfectly. ---Can't Keep It In--- Oh I can't keep it in, I can't keep it in, I've gotta let it out. I've got to show the world, world's got to see, see all the love love that's in me. I said, why walk alone, why worry when it's...

    I Love Cat Stevens

    He has way too many good songs to list but I especially love "Father and Son", "Bitterblue" and "The Wind". I could go on and on with songs by him I love.

    Young Love

    Cat Stevens. His voice, his lyrics, his music, they all bring fond memories of my childhood. My father would listen to his Cat Stevens Greatest Hits cassette while he was working. I would skip and jump along to "Moonshadow." I would twirl and spin to "Oh Very Young...

    Or Yusuf As He Is Now Called

    I only know a handful of his older stuff. That only being because of the wide variety of music I listen to and the fact that I was not born until 1990. However I LOVE his new stuff. I don't care about his religious beliefs or any of that mess. I just care about how wonderfully he...
