Song of the Day: Blue

Joni Mitchell - Blue
Album: Blue (1971)

Nothing beats a song performed by a vocalist with nothing but piano accompaniment. Well, in my opinion anyway (for what little that counts for). Piano supports the voice, it doesn't detract from it. When the voice is as good as Joni Mitchell's you won't want to be focusing on anything else. 'Blue' is the perfect vehicle for Mitchell's talents; well written, full of emotion, beautifully performed.

Enjoy the song... and this moment. It's rare that you'll find me putting up a song that's pre-1990. Maybe I'll have to do something about that. Do a 'classics' post or something. Maybe. Maybe not.
