"I Could Drink A Case of You, And I Would Still Be on my Feet"

Publisher's note: Fan reaction to the Gold Coast Bluenote jukebox rocketed her to #8 on the Rosedale, Mississippi Juke Joint charts this week. The Publisher will therefore leave the juke joint jive up top, as lead post for a while longer, until demand drops off. And the Sandman, our graveyard shift DJ, has a great new track for you today: dedicated to the one who everybody loves -- that old school universal love thing: "A Case of You" by Joni Mitchell, from her 1971 album Blue.

Et Toi!

Joni...I fell in love with her.

Too bad she never noticed.

I'm sure Joni draws inspiration from you and all her "billion year old carbon" admirers 'who want to get back to the garden.' Thanks for you comment.

Great work in your comment for Duane Wednesday yesterday at Florida Cracker.

I love Joni Mitchell - born in 1967, raised in communal vegetable and flower gardens, found joni by college and have been looking for the revolution ever since.... expecting and forever optomistic for the 100th monkey!

Thanks for stopping by Revolution Central (Joni-style).

"Well I looked at the granite markers
Those tribute to finality to eternity
And then I looked at myself here
Chicken scratching for my immortality
In the church they light the candles
And the wax rolls down like tears
There's the hope and the hopelessness
I've witnessed thirty years
We're only particles of change I know I know
Orbiting around the sun
But how can I have that point of view
When I'm always bound and tied to someone
White flags of winter chimneys
Waving truce against the moon
In the mirrors of a modern bank
From the window of a hotel room

I'm traveling in some vehicle
I'm sitting in some cafe
A defector from the petty wars
Until love sucks me back that way"
(Joni Mitchell -- from title track of her album Hejira)

Thanks for stopping by. Just the snippet I learned from your great comment lets me know we have a lot in common,

"Peace, Love, and Revolution" (-- Lucinda Williams, 1993 live album salutation to Filmore West crowd),
