Joanie loves Chachi...uh, I mean Pete

> Joni to me is cut from the same cloth as Pete.


I don't know about THAT, now. I feel El Pete is rather unique.

Fair enough.

I agree with you here. The main difference, for me, is that her songs are
less universal than Pete's. I find he tends to write in what I would call
an "epic" manner, unlike fellow British songwriter Ray Davies...who writes
about the details of life. In other words, I would say that Davies was
closer to Mitchell as a songwriter.

Very true.

Not at the moment, but I have had it. The problem for me is personal,
because I met this girl and after a night together she kept singing "Help
me I think I'm falling in love again..."

You see my point?

And I keep thinking of what Flo and Eddie said: "It's a fine line between
Joni and Yoko."

And no, I'm not trying to start another Yoko discussion.
