Today’s forgotten oldie comes from a very talented lady, Joni Mitchell. From folk to pop to rock, Joni has been a mainstay in the folk-rock genre and her music has crossed over to all formats. In her career she has released over 100 albums. In 1970, her song “Big Yellow Taxi” reached #67 on the hot 100, a live version in 1974 reached #24 on the hot 100. The song was a top ten hit in Canada, Australia and the UK. Basically a protest song about the environment, it has a number of memorable “fun” things that make the song special. Once thought of as the foremost woman on the music scene, today most of her music is forgotten. What a shame.
