Joni Mitchell Playlist
There are songs I hear on the radio these days that I like very much, and that I may have heard many times, but I just don’t know the words to those songs. I have no idea why my brain is wired to remember the lyrics to songs from my youth but, in my dotage, I cannot understand (never mind remember) the lyrics to a song from last week. I love to sing along to the radio when I’m driving. Is there any better joy than heading up north for a summer long weekend, with the windows rolled down and the volume cranked up, singing loudly along with a favourite tune? I know every word, hum, breath and sigh from Joni Mitchell’s album Blue. To this day, one of the best albums of all time, in my humble opinion.
I love that Joni is wearing her Order of Canada, but I particularly love that Joni is smoking in this photo. I think it means that she and I would have lovely time smoking and drinking a sidecar cocktail. I hope she would agree with my rant about Caveman Diet Evangelism. Except that cavemen didn’t have cocktails or cigarettes. Sounds like a stupid diet.
