“Well, if you want to sing out, sing out
and if you want to be free, be free
‘cause there’s a million things to be
you know that there are

And if you want to live high, live high
and if you want to live low, live low
‘cause there’s a million ways to go
you know that there are

You can do what you want
the opportunity’s on
and if you can find a new way
you can do it today
you can make it all true
and you can make it undo
you see ah ah ah
it’s easy ah ah ah
you only need to know

Well if you want to say yes, say yes
and if you want to say no, say no
‘cause there’s a million ways to go
you know that there are

And if you want to be me, be me
and if you want to be you, be you
‘cause there’s a million things to do
you know that there are



You can do what you want
the opportunity’s on
and if you can find a new way
you can do it today
you can make it all true
and you can make it undo
you see ah ah ah
it’s easy ah ah ah
you only need to know

Well, if you want to sing out, sing out
and if you want to be free, be free
‘cause there’s a million things to be
you know that there are
you know that there are
you know that there are
you know that there are
you know that there are”.

Citazioni.

If You Want To Sing Out, Sing Out is a popular song by Cat Stevens. It first appeared in the 1971 film Harold and Maude. Stevens wrote all the songs in Harold and Maude in 1970-1971, during the time he was writing and recording his Tea for the Tillerman album. However, “If You Want to Sing Out, Sing Out” and two other songs from that period were not released as singles nor placed on any album at that time. No official soundtrack was released from the film at that time. The song was finally released later on Stevens’ 1984 album, Footsteps in the Dark: Greatest Hits, Vol. 2 along with his other previously unreleased songs. In addition, it appeared on the UK edition of his 2003 album The Very Best of Cat Stevens. The first official soundtrack album to the film was released in December 2007, by Vinyl Films Records, as a vinyl-only limited edition release of 2500 copies. It contained a 30-page oral history of the making of the film, the most extensive series of interviews yet conducted on Harold and Maude.
The song features prominently in Hal Ashby‘s Harold and Maude. In 2007, a rendition of “Sing Out” appeared in the film Charlie Bartlett. The song is featured in the TV shows My Name Is Earl and Ray Donovan. It was featured as the 2nd song of Rodney Mullen‘s skateboarding part in the Plan B video, Questionable. The song is also the theme to the BBC Radio sitcom North by Northamptonshire. As of fall 2016, the song appears in a commercial for the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee“.
