Most Touching Joni Mitchell Songs

The Top Ten

1 Both Sides Now

"Love's illusions" yes Lord Thank Life - Swiftdawn

'I've looked at clouds from both sides now
From up and down, and still somehow
It's cloud illusions I recall
I really don't know clouds at all'

2 Stay In Touch

Britgirl, you only like two songs from Joni Mitchell? Is that possible? To each their own of course, but this woman goes really deep with her art. I think that she is one of the greatest lyricists of this world. I'm glad you are back, actually, I just discovered it! I had left a message for you in your Best Vera Lynn Songs but for some dark reasons you didn't read it...Haha...

There are only certain songs I like by Joni Mitchell and this, and 'You've Changed' are two of them. The lyrics to both songs speak volumes and are indeed extremely touching.
Nice name for a list ton, methinks. - Britgirl

' Part of this is permanent, part of this is passing
So we must be loyal and wary
Not to give away too much
Til we build a firm foundation
And empty out old habits...old habits
Stay in touch, we should stay in touch...Oh...stay in touch'

3 River

Saddest song ever. It's a really good song though.

4 My Secret Place

'I'm going to take you to
My special place
It's a place that you
Like no one else I know
Might appreciate
I don't go there with anyone--but
You're a special case
For my special place
For my secret place'

5 The Crazy Cries of Love
6 You've Changed

Hello Cookie. You know, I sensed this was your list - don't ask me how I knew, I just did. I decided to come back to this site because it's where I'm happiest. My life is good at the moment and I am happy. I found I was actually missing you...your sweetness...I never thought that you could ever make such awful comments, at least I hoped you wouldn't...I don't want you to leave the site (purely selfish reasons) your comments make me smile. I'm pleased you like Vera Lynn. You placed your comment on 'We'll Meet Again' which seems fitting I guess. There is something about you...I don't know what it is but...well, you can express yourself better than I can. But I hope you know what I mean. I hope you find this comment.
Hugs and kisses. - Britgirl

7 A Case of You
8 Cool Water

Hmm...hello again Britgirl. I'm very glad that you decided to write this message, because it is absolutely acceptable, cool and generous.To be honest, I was beginning to wonder if I did something wrong and I'm really happy that you set the record straight in your own sweet way. I won't leave this site as long as I have something to give and take. You know what I mean and I know what you mean, no worries. We both mean good. We don't have to worry and regret for silly things. I believe that because I don't like the alternative. Hugs and kisses. Have fun and enjoy your day in every way that pleases you! It's your life.

'...If you care
Please show us where
There's good water
Cool clear water'

9 You Turn Me On I'm a Radio

'Kick off the sand cause honey
The love's still flowing
If your head says forget it
But your heart's still smoking'

10 How Do You Stop?

The Contenders

11 Borderline

'Everybody looks so ill at ease
So distrustful so displeased
Running down the table
I see a borderline
Like a barbed wire fence
Strung tight, strung tense
Prickling with pretense
A borderline...'
