Joni Mitchell
« on: March 02, 2008, 01:04:51 AM »



I absolutely love Joni Mitchell. She's one of my favourite artists of all time.
Her melodies, her lyrics, her voice, her passion on performing. "Blue," "Ladies of the Canyon," "Court and Spark," "For The Roses" are all amazing masterpieces. Her latest album "Shine" is also one of my favourites from all time.

What you can say about this incredibly talented artist?  :)

I haven't really liked anything she's done since 'Mingus', but I think 'Don Juan's Reckless Daughter' is an overlooked masterpiece. And I love 'Miles Of Aisles'.

"Blue" is my second favourite album of all time, after Stevie Wonder's "Innervisions".  :)

It has also one of the most beautiful covers EVER!

I know, it's absolutely beautiful. That dark blue, with the image of a sad woman playing her flute, with her eyes closed. This is one of the reason because Joni Mitchell, not being a beautiful woman in the conventional sense, is actually a marvellous person.  :)

What about "Ladies of the Canyon"? I think it is her most similar album compared to Blue. Very acoustic and with an absolutely beatiful sad emotion.
I still don't listen "Hejira". Is good, isn't it?  :)

She is one of the best songwriters of the sixties!

That reminds me people voting in the forums of UKMix.org for the best canadian female artist, and Joni received almost no votes. Everyone picked Shania Twain, Celine Dion, or Alanis Morissette.
They're sick! Please! Joni Mitchell is an awesome artist, really talented, it's sad that many people don't know even who is she. In Argentina, my country, is almost entirely not-known.  >:(  :'(

I'm just getting into her 'Blue' album. Highly enjoyable so far. What an incredible voice she had.

Any more fans around?

Billion year old carbon
We are golden
Caught in the devil's bargain
And we've got to get ourselves
Back to the garden

Yeah, I grew up listening to her because of my older cousin. I'm going to thank her by taking her to the Hall of Fame in a couple of weeks to see some of Joni's things.  ;)

That sounds great!

I'm a newly converted Joni fan but I really like her. She is about the first female singer whose songs made me want to hear more (besides Blondie, if that counts). But I really enjoy her voice and she seems like a very down-on-earth person.

Sure Blondie counts!
