Song are like tattoos
Big Yellow Taxi.
That was once all I knew about Joni Mitchell and I guess because I didn't love it I did not need to look further. Then I heard the album 'Blue'.
Highly personal, an introspective testiment as to what genuis music, music that comes from the very core can do.
Joni has this ability to make her voice do all kinds of leaps and bounds, becoming an instrument itself and just as important if not more so than the chords of her guitar.
Pointless to explain and go through the history behind the songs, it is all Joni, it is all beautiful, powerful and pure.
