    Default Joni Mitchell = Genius

    For many reasons, but these lyrics (too a beautiful song, btw)... has there ever been any more poetic on this subject matter?

    Cold Blue Steel out of money
    One eye for the beat police
    Sweet Fire calling
    "You can't deny me
    Now you know what you need"
    Underneath the jungle gym
    Hollow-grey-fire-escape-thief
    Looking for Sweet Fire
    Shadow of Lady Release
    "Come with me
    I know the way" she says
    "It's down, down, down the dark ladder
    Do you want to contact somebody first
    Leave someone a letter
    You can come now
    Or you can come later"

    A wristwatch, a ring, a downstairs screamer
    Edgy-black cracks of the sky
    "Pin-cushion-prick-
    Fix this poor bad dreamer!"
    "Money" cold shadows reply
    Pawnshops crisscrossed and padlocked
    Corridors spit on prayers and pleas
    Sparks fly up from Sweet Fire
    Black soot of Lady Release
    "Come with me
    I know the way" she says
    "It's down, down, down the dark ladder
    Do you want to contact somebody first
    Does it really matter
    If you come now
    Or if you come on later?"

    Red water in the bathroom sink
    Fever and the scum brown bowl
    Blue Steel still begging
    But it's indistinct
    Someone's Hi-Fi drumming Jelly Roll
    Concrete concentration camp
    Bashing in veins for peace
    Cold Blue Steel and Sweet Fire
    Fall into Lady Release
    "Come with me I know the way" she says
    "It's down, down, down the dark ladder
    Do you want to contact somebody first
    I mean what does it really matter
    You're going to come now
    Or you're going to come later"

    I had the worst crush on Joni Mitchell when I was a kid.

    A lot her stuff's too cloy and upward-nosed, but when she got that mixture of ultimate-hippie-folk-angel and higher-minded-sophisto-jazzbo just right, boy, it sends you.

    I hate Carly Simon. She seems bitchy and her voice always annoyed me. Really Carol King was the best of that generation of female singer song writers even though I also don't care for her music.
