Thread Name: Help: Urge for Going (recorded by Joni Mitchell?)
Subject: RE: Help: Joni Mitchell's Urge for Going
I have the 45, as the flip side of You Turn Me On, I'm A Radio. It's the only 45 I have ever owned. And I'm not the only one - many years ago, when rec.music.folk filled the ecological niche now occupied by Mudcat, a poster there noted that Urge For Going was the only 45 he had ever owned, as well.
Her phrasing is, as I think someone noted above, different from Tom Rush's. I think the world is more than big enough for both versions.
Mary Black - I love her voice, but I can't get past the mondegreen where she sings, "When the sun turns straight and cold" instead of "when the sun turns traitor cold."
