They are joined by The Girl after she climbs into their car while the two are eating in a diner. Later at a gas station, the three meet "GTO" and challenge him to a cross-country race to Washington, D.C. for "pink slips," where the winner will get the loser's car. Along the way, however, they keep stopping to help each other, and winning seems far from their thoughts. The road is itself a place to live, is home, not just a way to move

Blue by Joni Mitchell ( Recording )
4 editions published between 1971 and 2006 in English and German and held by 779 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Für viele ist Joni Mitchell schlicht die wichtigste und einflussreichste Künstlerin der populären Musik des ausgehenden 20. Jahrhunderts. <<Singer-Songwriterin>> ist das übliche Etikett für die gebürtige Kanadierin und Wahl-Kalifornierin. -- Aber Joni Mitchell hat das Genre gedehnt und ausgelotet wie keine Andere - von Folk über Pop, Jazz und Avantgarde bis zu afrikanischen Inspirationen und dies ein gutes Jahrzehnt bevor Paul Simon oder Peter Gabriel World Music zum neuen Trend des Pop machten. -- Joni Mitchells Stärke und Faszination ist aber auch untrennbar mit ihrer ganz persönlichen Song-Poesie verbunden - mit den Worten und Gefühlen einer Frau, die ihr Innerstes nach aussen kehrt und sich nicht scheut, auch ihre verletzlichste Seite zu offenbaren. -- Kein Wunder, dass ihre Songs auch immer wieder zu Spekulationen über die Hintergründe in ihrem Privatleben geführt haben. Und ebenfalls kein Wunder, dass so viele Menschen in Mitchells Songs auch immer wieder ihr eigenes Leben gespiegelt gesehen und dabei Hilfe oder Trost gefunden haben. -- <<Blue>> - 1971 ihr viertes Album - ist auch heute noch ein Meilenstein des intimen Songwritings.
