“Oh Very Young” is a song by Cat Stevens. It was released on his 1974 album Buddha and the Chocolate Box. The song, which poses a question that would be asked by future generations possessed of an older person’s wistful appreciation of the idealism of youth together with a subtle hint of mature guidance, reached number 10 in the U.S. charts. Suzanne Lynch worked as a session musician until she became a regular part of Cat Stevens’ vocal group and appeared on several of his albums. The first song Lynch did for Stevens was “Oh Very Young” in which she sang the solo line and the haunting background melody. Read on...
