TheFrontloader.com likes Joni Mitchell’s River

TheFrontloader.com has a great post about Joni Mitchell’s classic song “River” and takes a listen to covers of the song by Swapmeet Louie, Robert Downey, Jr., Indigo Girls, Heart, Allison Crowe, Sarah McLachlan, and Sixpence None the Richer. (Streaming and downloadable MP3s are available.)

The song is a reflection on a failed relationship… it’s Christmas time, and well, I guess the protagonist really likes to get sad during this time of year. The “river” represents a way out… a way out of all the emotion that this person just can’t escape if they remain where they are.
