Joni and Van, huh? Love it. I'll have check some of your others out that I'm less familiar with. Check out "A Minor Incident" by Badly Drawn Boy. Just a sad beautiful song about a parent contemplating suicide, and wishing the best for her son."If you were the woman, and I was the man" is also another great one. I love the use of the conditional throughout as John Prine and Margo Timmins (of Cowboy Junkies) trade verses. I've always thought of it as a feminist love song.

My recent favorite songs are by The Wailin' Jennys called "One Voice" and "Arlington." I have not listened to all their songs as I found "One Voice" on a mix called "Women of the World" put out by Putumayo which is an amazing cd as well.

Oh I love this so much. I found their book "A Lion Called Christian" in the Santa Rosa library when I was teenager and never forgot it. I'm glad Christian got his genes out there and went back to the wild a free man.
