220px-Teaser_&_the_firecat#17 – Cat Stevens – “Morning Has Broken” – (1971)

You have to admit it’s a little weird that one of Cat Steven’s most fondly remembered recordings is based on a Christian hymn – especially since, you know, he changed his name to Yusuf Islam and found himself on the U.S.’s “No Fly” list. Anyway this song is nothing short of beautiful. Cat’s voice and the wonderful piano really make it come to life. It’s the perfect songs for spring being on the horizon.
