Joni Mitchell



one of the dang jazz guys I start the morning with worked in a Christmas song motif and I needed a fix, took a lot of discipline but I restrained myself to River.  What a song.  It was the entry point I needed to get lost in Joni, who is just singularly great.  Regret that it took me so long to learn that.

"River" is one of those songs that's so heartbreaking, I almost never listen to it. And I listen to Joni practically nonstop. The notes of "Jingle Bells" is what really seals the deal. I hear those come up on shuffle and it's like "nope."

One of your tweets at some point in the last year or so got me to give her a real honest try, and I will always be grateful. Thinking about all the grumpy indie I listened to when Joni goshdarn Mitchell was an option is a humbling reminder to keep a more open and curious mind. I was only hurting myself!
