Blue, songs are like tattoos,
You know I've been to sea before
Crown and anchor me
Or let me sail away
I used to listen to this on vinyl as a child - it was in my Mother's record collection along with Led Zeppelin and The Beatles. I think it is the kind of song that really needs to listened to within the context of the album. On its own it is a little sad and downbeat. On the album it is more balanced and even. Either way, the images below create a neat little visual accompaniment to Joni's slightly mournful singing.
I'm leaving you with a graphic architectural space - a smudge of sunshine peeking out from the aquatic depth of 'blue'. It feels hopeful and less melancholy. And we could all do with a bit of that at the beginning of a new week!
