Father and Son (song)
Father and Son (song) - Wikipedia
The song frames a heartbreaking exchange between a father not understanding a son's desire to break away and shape a new life, and the son who cannot really explain himself but knows that it is time for him to seek his own destiny. Stevens sings in a deeper register for the father's lines, while using a higher one for those of the son. Additionally, there are backing vocals provided by Stevens' guitarist and friend Alun Davies beginning mid-song, singing an unusual chorus of simple refrains. Cat Stevens originally wrote "Father and Son" as part of a proposed musical project starring Nigel Hawthorne , called Revolussia , that was set during the Russian Revolution , and could also have become a film; the song was about a boy who wanted to join the revolution against the wishes of his conservative farmer father. The musical project faded away when Stevens contracted tuberculosis in Interviewed soon after the release of "Father and Son", Stevens was asked if the song was autobiographical.
