Favorite Musical Artists

I am, like many, a music fanatic. I was thinking today about whose music has left the greatest impression on me: as far as popular music I would have to say Van Morrison, Joni Mitchell, and maybe Janis Joplin; there was just something there. I think Van Morrison had a style that others can't really replicate. His voice is entirely unique. I can't believe how many covers there are on the Internet of Into the Mystic, which is my favorite song of his but was not his most popular. When I think of him, I think "grouse." He is very difficult, and I have read about this again and again. And Joni, she is an incredible poet, unmatched really.

Well I don't know where this subject came from, but this cold is keeping me from doing much else than blogging, I suppose. :)

  1. Good picks. Mine would include Van Morrison surely, but also Neil Diamond (extremely unique voice), Janis Ian (incredible voice and amazing writer), and Joan Baez.
