Yusuf Islam (formerly Cat Stevens)
Morning Has Broken
Originally a Christian hymn written by Eleanor Farjeon, this song was made popular by Yusuf Islam (formerly known as Cat Stevens). The piano intro is captivating, while Cat Stevens’ voice has a razor sharp feel to it. Though this song is meant to have a positive effect on the listener, one can’t help but feel a bit pensive at the end of it. There’s one message that comes through clearly however — stop complaining and count your blessings.
