My Lost Treasure: Joni Mitchell
The theme (the only one so far this summer) is transportation. We covered trains, and now we're working on songs about planes. I asked for suggestions, and I got a lot of them. Today's song is a request for my facebook friend Richard Adler.
First, I want to say I'm praying hard for Joni Mitchell's recovery. There have been a lot of conflicting stories in the news about her health. We do know she suffered an aneurysm, and hopefully she'll make a full recovery. Joni's contributions to the music world are countless. Did you know the line in Led Zeppelin's Going to California about the girl with flowers in her hair is a reference to Joni Mitchell? She wrote the song Woodstock. And a slew of other great songs.
So, today it's a Joni Mitchell song that fits our theme. Get well soon, Joni. We love you.
