1. Father & Son • Tea For The Tillerman (1970) • Cat Stevens (Yusuf Islam)
In Father & Son, Stevens captures the age-old conflict between fathers and sons. Best Line: For you will still be here tomorrow, but your dreams may not.

2. Papa Was a Rolling Stone • All Directions (1972) • The Temptations (1972)
Papa Was a Rolling Stone is the all-too familiar tale of an absentee father—maybe not so celebratory…but it’s a Motown classic and a fabulous reminder to appreciate your own great dad.
