Thread Name: Interesting Joni Mitchell article
Subject: RE: Interesting Joni Mitchell article
For great melodies, look more to Joni's first 5 or 6 albums than the later stuff, I think. For truly great melodies look to Bob Dylan! (There. That oughta stir up some controversy...)

Some other great songwriters: Willie Nelson, Van Morrison, Leonard Cohen, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Buffy Sainte-Marie, and Al Stewart. They are each the absolute best at one thing...their own particular unique style of song and performance.

And that's the only definition of "best" that I really believe in.
