“Tea for the Tillerman” by Cat Stevens

This is the title track to Cat Stevens’ best album. (If you try to argue for anything else except “Teaser and the Firecat”, I’m not even going to bother with you.)

It’s such a short, simple thing. It puts my brain in pretzels trying to figure out how he managed to pack so much into just over a minute and have much of that be very little. It’s quite enjoyable on its own, but it’s so much better when you hear it the way it was originally made: as the end of that most excellent album. It’s a perfect little coda. So you should just go out and listen to that whole thing right now. Quit reading this crap. Get listening.
