Somehow I got caught up in all these shows on Ovation about Johnny Cash, Janis Joplin, Chrissie Hynde, and the Newport Folk Festival. It reminded me of how much music reminds us of places we've been, people we knew, and experiences we had. Certain songs trigger various memories. Some I can mention; some I won't. I guess it's sort of like having a sound track to part of our lives. What song represents your life? "Both Sides Now" is mine. Lyrics HERE. Joni Mitchell wrote and recorded it. This is a 1970 performance. In more recent years, she sings it with the maturity and emotion you'd expect. It's more jazz than folk now, too.
