The blog Byzantium’s Shores posts a review of the movie Harold & Maude, and talks about the movie’s soundtrack by Cat Stevens.
One other aspect of Harold and Maude that warrants mention are the songs, written and performed by Cat Stevens. His voice, an earnest tenor that occupies the same kind of area as Jim Croce, is ideally suited to the kind of story told here – or, more specifically, to the characters whose story we are following. I wasn’t terribly familiar with Cat Stevens before I saw this movie. The most important song in the film, “If You Want to Sing Out, Sing Out” is, in particular, a very special song.
