On Repeat: If You Want To Sing Out

leave a comment »

In the past two weeks I have quite a disturbing amount of messages from friends who are going through really awful things. The sorts of things that really make you stop whining about trivial things in your life because hating your job and unsuccessful job hunting really pails into comparison when you know people are dealing with potentially sick children/partners/relatives, battling aggressive diseases, struggling with ill-health, undergoing the breakdown of friendships and relationships…the list really does go on.

Taken from my favourite film of all time – Harold and Maude – this Cat Steven’s song may not be an antidote for the terrible things that happen but the sentiment is right up there. In fact, no matter what is happening in your life it seems to fit any mood.

The clip below nicely puts together some clips from the film but if you haven’t seen it I recommend that you rectify this immediately.
