I've looked at love from both sides now

Does that mean she went lesbo?

I always thought it meant she had won a few lovers and lost a few lovers over time.

I loved Nicolette Larson.

Thats nice but Joni Mitchell sang the song.

Loool Op. That's all you managed to deduce from this beautiful song? What a strange thought! Haha!

Mitchell wrote it, but I recorded the hit version.

Lol Judy! Charming! (clapping hands)

I thought it meant she has experienced and contemplated the positive and negative effects of being in love.

Drinking already? Or still drunk from last night?

Funny you should ask.

Top and bottom?

She knows what love is like on the way up (before the heartbreak), and she knows what it's like on the way down, after the heart is shattered into a million pieces.

The dizzy, dancing way you feel

One of the most sincere and heartfelt songs i have ever listened too. 'It's cloud illusions I recall I really don't know clouds at all...' How poetic and soulful, really!

R10 is correct based on an interview with Judy Collins.

I've always loved the lines: Tears and fears and feeling proud to say "I love you" right out loud.

She is a brilliant writer.

Interesting how so many young hipster listen to her now. My friends like myself have a lot of her records. Hissing of Summer Lawns and Hejira are my favs.

Joni Mitchell?

When defining "straightest of the straight" for women, one need only say, "Straight, like Joni Mitchell."

True, R17. She was the female equivalent of a pussyhound, but directed only toward men (any man).

And I think her music is infantile & indulgent. So there!

Even Glen Campbell had a crack at it.

virgin/not - before/after

Those are the 2 sides, young and naive/older and experienced.

Am I wrong?

R18 So did Sinatra. (Frank, not Nancy.)

Don't know about Joni Mitchell, but I was once amused to hear a comedian list this as the #1 song not to play at weddings.

A high point in my shows, even as part of my perennial holiday tour, "Both Sides Now" always brings my multi-generational audience to its collective feet. Except, of course, for those unable to stand due to their heartbreaking disabilities. They generally weep.

When did Miss Mitchell last perform it live?
