Description

Music video by Boyzone performing Father And Son.

(C) 1995 Universal Music Ireland Ltd.

"Father and Son" is a popular song written and performed by English singer-songwriter Cat Stevens (now known as Yusuf Islam) on his 1970 album Tea for the Tillerman. The song frames an 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 words and sentences such as "No" and "Why must you go and make this decision alone?".

Boyzone version
"Father and Son" became the fifth single from Irish boy band Boyzone in 1995, reaching number two on the UK Singles Chart and number one on the Irish Singles Chart. The cover was the sixth biggest selling boy band single of the 1990s in the UK, selling 815,700 copies receiving a Platinum sales status certification. The cover was the thirteenth best selling single of 1995 in the UK.
