Happy December, dear Vixens!!! T’is the season for Christmas songs so while you deck the halls and enjoy your Advent treats, why not add a few new tunes to your play list???
I have been overdosing on the genius of this woman for weeks now, and I do not see an end in sight anytime soon. I have been a fan of hers for years, but after not listening to her music for a while because all of my CD’s are still not unpacked, I heard one of her songs on the radio (yes, I still listen!!!) and became addicted all over again.
I must admit she was an acquired taste for me yet, despite hearing her songs by other artists for years I still did not get it. But I guess I am in good company because Tom Hanks’ character in “You’ve Got Mail” was unsure of her as well (” ‘It’s clouds illusions I recall, I really don’t know clouds at all’ What does that mean? Is she a pilot? Is she taking flying lessons? It must be a metaphor for something, but I don’t know what it is.”)

Total aside – I love that scene…..
And that movie…..
But I digress.
I am ashamed to admit that it took me so long to appreciate this woman’s gifts for story telling, poetry, imagery, songwriting and singing. Now I can listen to her for days on end and still not get enough. And for a music connoisseur like me, you know it has to be good if I am letting my ears have that much time with her.
So here is my first music selection…..
For the ENTIRE Christmas season of 2016…..
And I hope it makes your heart swoon like it does mine 🙂
Joni Mitchell: River.
I do not own the rights to anything. I am just sharing some things that I love with you.
Until next time, fellow Vixens, happy listening!!!
