kirstenanderberg Joni Mitchell (37) RE: Joni Mitchell 17 Aug 05


You can say I am a bad person for having strong views on Joni, but you will also notice I have intense files of info on her, she is definitely one of the most influential people of my life...and I do not even know her!

I am not sure if this Joni trivia has been shared here either...I cannot remember where I heard these things, but believe most came from her mouth in one interview or another...

Carey is written for James Taylor...I think they had a vacation together in some exotic place that was the topic of that song

And in Ladies of the Canyon, the woman who makes the brownies is Mama Cass...

Willy is written for Graham Nash...

Our House by Crosby Stills and Nash is about Joni and Graham's house in Laurel Canyon

The song Triad by David Crosby was supposedly about David's love for Joni while she was with Graham Nash. David Crosby produced Joni's first album...

There is an excellent documentary called "Under the Covers" about the making of legendary album covers in the 1960-70's and Blue is included as he decided to tint it blue. There is GREAT footage of Joni Mitchell and Graham Nash romping in the snow for a photo shoot in that video. He goes into a bush sledding, she puts a bandaid on his butt...it is rare footage.

Joni also drew the cover of one of Crosby Stills Nash (And Young, I believe)'s album covers...it was something like "So Far..."
