Robert Bloemkolk Nice. Got to listen some more to Amanda Palmer. Where to start?

c4c1e5c5 The music and the singing is great and that's enough reason to love it. Original came out, about terrible things happening but the music and Ms. Mitchell's tone was light and sweet, as though to say yes, these things are happening but we can put a stop to them. Different time now, not so much good feeling about where things are going. Ms. Palmer's voice echos that feeling with a tremble here, a slight gasp there. And the music, lovely as it is, fits the tone perfectly.

Sven B. Schreiber (sbs) Joni Mitchell's uptempo pop hit as a ballad? Well, why not... frankly, I like it much better this way! I also like the guitar contribution of Sean Ono Lennon on this track quite a bit.
