I’m a painter first and I kind of apply painting principles to music – Joni Mitchell
‘I was a free man in Paris / I felt unfettered and alive / There was nobody calling me up for favors / And no one’s future to decide / You know I’d go back there tomorrow / But for the work I’ve taken on / Stoking the star-maker machinery / Behind the popular song.” – Free Man In Paris lyrics by Joni Mitchell
“They paved paradise / And put up a parking lot.” – Big Yellow Taxi lyric, Joni Mitchell
