I always really liked the line "Help me, I think I'm falling in love with you. Are you going to let me go there by myself? That's such a lonely thing to do"

That is pretty silly, but she is from the 60s, so

Reading about that got me to her wikipedia page tho, which lead to this:

In 1995, Mitchell's friend Fred Walecki, proprietor of Westwood Music in Los Angeles, developed a solution to alleviate her continuing frustration with using multiple alternative tunings in live settings. Walecki designed a Stratocaster-style guitar to function with the Roland VG-8 (Virtual Guitar), a system capable of configuring her numerous tunings electronically. While the guitar itself remained in standard tuning, the VG-8 encoded the pickup signals into digital signals which were then translated into the altered tunings. This allowed Mitchell to use one guitar on stage, while an off-stage tech entered the preprogrammed tuning for each song in her set.[51]


Which is really interesting

Never listened to Miles of Aisles before despite knowing all of her studio albums through Court & Spark really well. This is great.

I don't like listening to her, but I love reading interviews with her.

~Mother's Day Bump~



Papa's faith is people
Mama she believes in cleaning
Papa's faith is in people
Mama she's always cleaning
Papa brought home the sugar
Mama taught me the deeper meaning

She don't like my kick pleat skirt
She don't like my eyelids painted green
She don't like me staying up late
In my high-heeled shoes
Living for that rock 'n' roll dancing scene
Papa says "Leave the girl alone, mother
She's looking like a movie queen"

Mama thinks she spoilt me
Papa knows somehow he set me free
Mama thinks she spoilt me rotten
She blames herself
But papa he blesses me
It's a rough road to travel
Mama let go now
It's always called for me

Sometimes I get that feeling
And I want to settle
And raise a child up with somebody
I get that strong longing
And I want to settle
And raise a child up with somebody
But it passes like the summer
I'm a wild seed again
Let the wind carry me

love this joni jian-related quote:
http://www.macleans.ca/society/the-interview-joni-mitchell/
Q: Two other songs on this box set—Not To Blame and No Apologies—also sound like they could have been written yesterday. They touch on the current discussion of sexual abuse and violence against women.

A: You know I did an interview with a CBC commentator. I exorcised the house after this guy left. I smudged it and opened all the windows. Now it comes out that he has been fired from CBC. People kept saying, “What a great interviewer.” I didn’t think so. After about the 20th one, I said, “What did you think was great about it?” That he couldn’t knock me over? They would look stunned when I said that. To me, his behaviour was overtly hostile.

Indeed.

Court and Spark will always be one of my favorite albums. I was listening to it at work one day and someone randomly walking down the hall stopped at my office to tell me how much he also loves Joni Mitchell.

Joni, uniting the people.

been listening to the mid 70s works obsessively recently. what an incredible tear she was on.
also been branching out into some of the Geffen works. Wild Things... is pretty interesting in that you get to hear her try on some stuff that's pretty poppy/different, if not always entirely successful.

"chinese cafe" off Wild Things... is such a fucking gem tho. (damnit - can't find youtube of the studuo version).
