Her voice flies like a swallow before the thunderstorm.
Someone said this on the radio about her today. Joni Mitchell is 75 today.

  5. It's also agile, wide ranging, self-mocking, always on the button and it caresses the words she has written. For me the Schubert de nos jours except we cannot know if he sang his own stuff. Judging by his scores he was an absolute devil on the joanna. I wonder if Joni has ever sung An die Musik. No reason why not, she shares the sentiments it expresses.

    Du holde Kunst, ich danke dir.

  6. Isn't that amazing? She's one of my heroines, although the recent biography I read of her makes her sound like a challenging person. Nothing wrong with that -- it leads to excellence, after all!
