For Sunday: Cat Stevens sings “Katmandu”

I have loved this song since the mid-1970s. It is mystical and funny and strange, and has a lovely ethereal feel.  And I love the flute solo, and the time-signature shifts.

 

 

“Katmandu / I’ll soon be seein’ you / And your strange bewildering time / Will hold me down . . .”

 

 

Enjoy.

    Yes that is lovely. I have a CD by him, which I still listen to from time to time. Do you like Nick Drake?
