Joni Mitchell

I’m an old person. I like music from the old days. Yesterday I threw a Joni Mitchell CD on the player in my car and turned it up really loud. Young people don’t know who Joni Mitchell is. They think Billie Holliday is a man and never heard of The Beatles. I think I have an advantage when I know all those old voices, yet can appreciate Beyonce and Mumford and Sons.

  1. Joni Mitchell isn’t my music. Musically I’m stuck in the ’90s. I love Rammstein, The Rasmus, Bush, Garbage, Four Non-Blondes, Apocalyptica, Courtney Love, Nirvana. But that doesn’t mean I think Billie Holliday was a man (Billy Ocean is a man, Billie Holliday was a woman).

  2. I like Joni Mitchell. Having said that I don’t have one bit of her music! When I think of Joni Mitchell I think of Big Yellow Taxi and the film Love Actually. The music that I am currently playing (in my car and on my MP3 player when I’m out walking the dog) is Billy Joel, Christine and the Queens, Adele and Earth Wind and Fire.
