Would she rock out like she did with the L. Express on the tour that resulted in the live double album Miles Of Aisles? Would it be a return to the voice-and-guitar folk roots of Ladies Of The Canyon? Would she open up her soul by delivering a set of confessional songs a la Blue?
She did Harrys House / Centerpiece - Joni Mitchell - The Hissing Of Summer Lawns of the sort, and fans were mostly confounded by The Hissing Of Summer Lawns, while many critics flat-out hated it. This was something completely new and different. This was a modal jazz Joni who turned the commerciality of Court And Spark upside down and left I Still Love You - Paul Stanley - Heavens On Fire in the gutter to die like road kill.
But then the album takes a sharp left turn. It never happens…. The song pays homage to the jungle themed paintings of French Post-Impressionist painter Henri Rousseau by marrying his imaginary jungle worlds with the all too real world of drugs, sex and crime. Where does that inspiration come from? And how can she weave so many stereotypes into a song without sounding, well, stereotypical? Check out these lyrics for yourself:.
