Blue - Joni Mitchell





Joni Mitchell's voice, from the record, Miles of Aisles, is one of the first I ever fell in love with. And I was obsessed with her toes. This might be one of my favorite songs of hers. Did I understand the words? No...

The amazing stuff a person can find, nowadays, on YouTube.

Blue here is a shell for you
Inside you'll hear a sigh
A foggy lullaby
There is your song from me

Quoth Joni, "That's one thing that's always like, uh...been a major difference between the performing arts and a painter...Like a painter does a painting and that's it.......nobody ever said to Van Gogh, 'Paint A Starry Night again, man.' You know: he painted it. That was it."

Next thing you know, she's singing "Circle Game."

Mitchell certainly is a fine musical mind ... I personally like her song Amelia.
