I had a lot of thoughts about the excellent symbiosis of Cat Stevens and Harold & Maude, and just how much that was a match made in heaven. I was thinking about it so hard that I couldn’t wait until this song came up on the playlist so I went ahead and wrote than essay and posted it with a different song. Really jumped the gun on that one. No regrets or anything. It was a decent enough piece of writing and I still agree with myself. But I should have waited, because this songs is THE Harold & Maude song. Not just in the literal sense that it written specifically for the film and wasn’t culled from an album or destined to be a single. It’s that when Cat Stevens wrote it, he just nailed the whole movie down in just a few lines.
