I'm one of those people that when I see a YouTube vid embedded into someone's post I seldom click on it - so why should I expect you to click on what is below? I've had many favourite songs over the years - Black Books by Nils Lofgren/ Darling Belle by the Incredible String Band/ Eastern Rain by Fairport Convention/ Only Living Boy in New York by S&G. However, I keep returning to this beautiful Joni song - Amelia (written as her tribute to Amelia Earhart - there is some footage of AH throughout the clip). It is also a story of an unhappy love affair and I'm not the only person to think it is her best song - see here
This live version is slightly different from the original and I really would have preferred to have given you the version that is on the CD Hejira - but it was not out there. Skip the last couple of minutes - the guitar player that is with her just goes on a bit too long.
Do you have a favourite song of all time? Of course you do- what is it?
