Meet Me In Montauk likes How Can I Tell You

The blog Meet Me In Montauk spotlight’s Cat Stevens’ song “How Can I Tell You?” in its ongoing Song of the Day feature.

This is the first tune that really hit me as a bona fide, lay it all on the line, love song love song. I heard it for the first time back in high school and was struck by how completely earnest it is. That’s actually a quality Cat Stevens brings to most of his work, but this song in particular.

It’s one of my favorites, too. The quiet vulnerability of this song never fails.
