Song of the day: Cat Stevens- Wild World
In 1970, Cat Stevens wrote a new song for his fourth studio album. The song is about Patti D’Arbanville, an actress with whom Cat Stevens had a relationship. This song is about the end of their relationship. The song did well: number 11 in the US. It also has been covered many times, including versions by Jimmy Cliff, Maxi Priest, Mr. Big and many others. Jonathan King even claimed the Pet Shop Boys used the melody in their song It’s A Sin! To demonstrate that, he recorded Wild World on the melody of It’s A Sin. Eventually this song flopped and the Pet Shop Boys won the case… Enjoy
