penny rimbaud- my top 10 favourite albums: number 10
Joni Mitchell – ‘For the Roses’
to quote from the final track of the album, ‘Judgement of the Moon and Stars’ –
‘You’ve got to shake your fists at lightning now
You’ve got to roar like forest fire
You’ve got to spread your light like blazes
All across the sky
They’re going to aim their hoses on you
Show them you won’t expire
Not till you burn up every passion
Not even when you die
Come on now
You’ve got to try
If you’re feeling contempt
Well then you tell it
If you’re tired of the silent night
Jesus, well then you yell it
Condemned to wires and hammer
Strike every chord that you feel
That broken trees
And elephant ivories
Blimey, what else could I possibly say?
Stunning Argentinian babe shows off football skills in…?
Give us a break.
Love, blessings and joy, Penny Rimbaud. January 2014.
