Joni is bohemian cafés and parking lots, Bush is the windswept hills, the big sky, dancing on the lake and making deals with God. It's in another dimension.

Yeah but Joni would be more fun. You'd be drinking whiskey and smoking fags with her.

Otoh Bush would probably pour liquid LSD into your mouth from an ornate antique beaker and then run with you naked over the Moors.
I see I've already covered this

Love this title btw I guess it's a bush lyric? See I don't know any of her lyrics so maybe I'm missing out on that aspect.

Joni Mitchell is one of the few singers whose lyrics I *am* conscious and her voice is a heart seeking missile 🚀

In an absurd way I see this as similar to the MJ Vs Prince discussion although Joni and MJ aren't comparable beyond a beautiful high voice and plaintive, bittersweet harmonies.

Actually nowadays the latter sounds more fun by far lol

There are other Kate Bush threads but I like this one cos it starts from a spiritual experience in a chip shop.

Listening to (well, skipping impatiently through) 'hounds of love'. I like

Cloudbusting ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
Watching You Without Me ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ 1/2
The Morning Fog ****
Mother Stands for Comfort ****
Running Up That Hill (i'm confused atm cos although this is clearly a standout song for her I'm judging it too harshly or not in the mood and i wouldn't rank it up there with cloudbusting)
Under Ice ***1/2

I prefer the stuff with a bit of space and relatively subtlety to it, less so the fist-pumping (muddy sounding) stuff
