Song: I Wish, I Wish
Artist: Cat Stevens
Album: Mona Bone Jakon (1970)
Was tough to pick only one Cat Stevens song. This is a good one, nice and upbeat. But I recommend listening to all his music. Story time: Cat Stevens was born “Steven Demetre Georgiou” but used the stage name Cat Stevens. In 1977 he converted to Islam and changed his name to Yusuf Islam. Why? In 1976, he nearly drowned off the coast of Malibu (California) and said he shouted: “Oh, God! If you save me I will work for you.” According to him, a wave came right after that and brought him back to shore. A perfect biblical story. Enjoy this song and all his music!
