Chelsea Morning: Joni Mitchell

Joni Mitchell’s birthday was Tuesday. She turned 74, and I missed it. I blame Alexa. Last week I had asked Alexa to remind me of Joni’s birthday, and I don’t think she did, but I was sleeping so I could have missed Alexa’s reminder. Anyway, if you’ve been with me a while, you know Joni is about my all time favorite. When I was in the Peace Corps, I had a cassette recorder, one of those rectangular ones we all had. I had about 4 or 5 cassettes with me including CSN&Y, Peter, Paul and Mary, Creedence and Joni’s Clouds. I think my friends and I wore out that album, We played it just about every night and never tired of it. Chelsea Morning is my favorite song from this album. The lyrics are amazing so filled with colors and images, similes and metaphors. I can still see this song in my head.

      J,
      I haven’t ever heard of Joni singing this. It is not a song I would have expected.

      I love the Joplin as she put her own vocal uniqueness to the familiar. Now, I can say the same about Joni. This is like hearing a song you faintly recognize but can’t put your finger on. It is a Joni interpretation, and I like it. Thanks!!
