Re: Butchering Joni Mitchell

The original is so atmospheric and beautiful. So much in the silence. Like a dark night where you are free to think.

The cover comes in with a big rock bar band bludgeon. It reminds of that big train sketch where the woman has a nice song and they smother it with drums and guitar

I like the CSNY version - so different that it doesn't affect the original (for me). Matthews Southern Comfort did an also different soft country version that got to number one in the UK. That I also like (but not quite enough to look it up on Youtube).
