I had SO MUCH material for #MapleLeafMarch that I literally posted every day - and we rarely do weekend posts here - and even double posted for a couple of days.
I STILL have material.
Maybe I should make it an annual thing. Hmmmm.....
I somehow didn't get to Joni Mitchell, from Fort Macleod, Alberta. That's right. She's not only from Canada, she's from the part of Canada that 90% of the country doesn't live in. Clearly, she is a legend - winning many Grammys and Juno Awards. This song, from 1970, was one of her first hit singles, and it's a cheery-sounding song that actually decries the suburban sprawl that was happening at the time. It is still one of her best-known songs, and the message still resonates, more than a half century later.
That's right. Joni Mitchell has been making music for more than a half century. She's slowed down in her late 70's - largely due to a brain aneurysm rupture she suffered in 2015 - but she has not stopped.
