I am on a lonely road and I am traveling
traveling, traveling, traveling
Looking for something, what can it be?
Oh i hate you some, I hate you some
I love you some
I love you when I forget about me
I want to be strong I want to laugh along
I want to belong to the living
Alive, alive, I want to get up and jive
I want to wreck my stockings in some juke box dive
Do you want- do you want- do you want
to dance with me baby
do you want to take a chance
and maybe find some sweet romance with me baby
well come on

All I really really want our love to do
is to bring out the best in me and in you too
All I really really want our love to do
is to bring out the best in me and in you
I want to talk to you, I want to shampoo you
I want to renew you again and again
Applause, applause- Life is our cause
When I think of you kisses
my mind see-saws
do you see- do you see- do you see
how you hurt me baby
so I hurt you too
then we both get so blue

I am on a lonely road and I am traveling
looking for the key to set me free
Oh the jealousy, the greed is the unraveling
it's the unraveling
and it undoes all the joy the could be
I want to have fun, I want to shine like the sun
I want to be the one that you want to see
I want to knit you a sweater
want to write you a love letter
I want to make you feel better
I want to make you feel free
Hmm, Hmm, Hmm, Hmm,
Want to make you feel free
I want to make you feel free

Any J. Mitchell tune with the word "free" in the lyrics starts with an 8 and gets better with time.  In case you were wondering how I think.
Blast the volume up boy!

I love Joni Mitchell.
I used to not like her, and for some years, I just would PSD her songs. Couldn't stand her voice.
And, I don't know, I was once in one of these old lanes of Beijing, the one called hutong, listening to my local playlist. I had downloaded some songs by Joni Mitchell thinking that I should try listening given the numerous praise here on to and elsewhere, but never finding the time, the right disposition, the appeal.
It was a bad bad day, lots of administrative fuss, work not nice, bank closed, family absent and bad news. Really bad day.
This came up in the playlist, on shuffle. It took me by surprise. I felt so much more better after that. Like being cared by this voice, touched by a free spirit, light and funny.
When this song comes up, I just listen to it, suspended in a moment some years ago, in this lane, a grey winter day, with sun in my ears...

 
Ambrebalte, I fear you are an innocent commentator on RP.  Nice to read your personal memories and experiences with Joni Mitchell music.

The previous posting is a picture of a woman (doesn't matter who) showing surprise / shock / horror at something - in this case they want to portray the effect that this song has on their ears!

Just the peculiar RP humour that we have here on the forum - don't take it too personally!

This page seems to be free of the usual Joni haters; a nice change.
Her voice was just like the sun that poured like butterscotch .......

I want to shampoo you.

Listen to Joni 

 
seriously,  that is some good advice
Oh Bill... THANK YOU. This set is mighty, mighty fine! Clapton, then Case Lang & Veirs, then my Joni. {#Good-vibes}
Another wonderful Joni song you never hear on conventional radio.
