CAFFE` LATTE` PRESENTS
A countdown of the 200 songs possessing the best lyrics of all-time. A playlist on spotify will be added at the end of the week.
OH VERY YOUNG
“…Though you want to last forever,
you know you never will...”
Cat Stevens was one of the key musicians that shaped the singer/ songwriter era of the early 1970s. "Oh Very Young" was a song he created that was featured on his 'Buddha and the Chocolate Box' album. The LP was issued in 1974.
Stevens' thought-provoking lyrics deal with the inevitability that we all grow old and that everything has a limited time span.
As new songs are covered on this blog, a definitive version will be added to a spotify playlist. Find it and the other Caffé Latté playlists at:
