How Do I...?
I think the most seductive--mood creating songs for anytime but Valentine’s Day specifically are without a doubt Leonard Cohen's "I'm Your Man" from the album of the same title followed by his "Dance Me to the End of Love," found on Various Positions.
This masterful adaptation by Ang Lee of the Annie Proulx short story is a landmark in the cinematic depiction of love between men. Two impoverished ranch hands in 1963 Wyoming meet while sharing work and initiate an intimate relationship that informs the rest of their lives. An unlikely love transcends the circumstances of a repressive, homophobic society, even as the characters' lives are ruined by the societal hatred surrounding them. A beautiful, unforgettable cinematic achievement.
If you’ve always hoped to meet that special someone who is the peanut butter to your jelly no matter how eccentric you are, you might enjoy watching Harold and Maude this Valentine’s Day. Harold, who stages fake suicides for his mother’s benefit and is obsessed with death, is caught off-guard when he meets carefree Maude at a funeral, eventually falling in love. Nevermind that she’s 79.
