about

Words and music by Joni Mitchell.

"Released in 1971, Joni Mitchell's 'Blue' is generally regarded by music critics as one of the greatest albums of all time. The song 'Blue' is absolutely one of the most achingly beautiful and devastating love songs I have ever heard. She was accused of baring too much on this album. That it was too raw. She didn't know how to do it any other way though and in turn gave the world one of the greatest records ever made. Great art is born of great pain and Blue is the perfect example of that. "

lyrics

Songs are like tattoos
You know I've been to sea before
Crown and anchor me
Or let me sail away
Hey Blue
There is a song for you
Ink on a pin
Underneath the skin
An empty space to fill in
Well there're so many sinking
Now you've got to keep thinking
You can make it thru these waves
Acid, booze, and ass
Needles, guns, and grass
Lots of laughs 
Lots of laughs

Everybody's saying that hell's the hippest way to go well 
I don't think so 
Gonna take a look around it though Blue I love you

Hey Blue 
Here is a shell for you
Inside you'll hear a sigh
A foggy lullaby
Here is your song from me

Gail George New York, New York

Genre defying, the songwriting and production of Gail George is the sum of her musical parts. Melodic vocals over chiming guitars. Swirls of synth driven 80s piano and keyboards. A nod to 60s and 70s soulful pop and psychedelic rock all help to create a unique and distinctive but identifiable sound. She’s California pop meets New York grit. With a touch of whimsy and a whole lot of heart. ... more
