Song of the Day - June 3, 2009
Today's Song of the Day comes to us from Cat Stevens. Yes, that Cat Stevens. You think of him, and you probably think of relatively assured melodies deployed in support of relatively vague yet intriguing lyrics, right? Well, here's Cat as you may have never heard him before - the purveyor of a piece of weird and progressive R&B brilliance called Was Dog a Doughnut. Ponder the epistemological import of the title all you like, but there's some serious hip in this Cat's hop. Like he spent a day listening to Kraftwerk and Giorgio Moroder and thought, "Anyone can do this." Don't believe me? Check it out for yourself. Cat was an Atomic Dog before George Clinton chased the cat.
