Random Acts of Music

A little Joni for a lovely Saturday. . .

I really wanted to find a live performance of "Case of You," but to no avail. I surmise that the lack of live performances of this song may be due to the fact that it is heartbreakingly sad, perhaps personally so for Mitchell. But there I go again with the authorial intention critique--wholly unreliable and deplorable theory as we English majors were told again and again. . . oh, but it's so tempting. . .

Who knows why there aren't live performance videos. Maybe she decided she hated them all and demanded everyone delete them from YouTube!

Uh oh, there I go with an authorial intention critique, ha ha!

LOL. I crack myself up.

Joni Mitchell makes me feel deliciously sad.

And I'd love to exchange links, this is a very late reply but I've been seriously absent lately (mentally and from the blogsphere)!
