It's coming on Christmas
They're cutting down trees
They're putting up reindeer
And singing songs of joy and peace

    There was a time in my life when 70% of this song could've been my theme song. One particular Christmas day was the saddest of my life.

    > I'm listening to the song right now and all kinds of bad things are happening! Same thing here. Bad things were happening before I started listening to this song, but still. Stil, this song makes the difference between "incredibly bad" and "barely bearable".

    LOVE THIS ALBUM: JONI, JAMES TAYLOR, CROSBY & NASH. Garrison Keillor(Prairie Home Companion) says this is one important album to have. Some of the greatest songwriting!!! Linda Ronstadt covered this.

    "Oh, I wish I had a river I could skate away on". Preciosa. No me canso de escucharla.

    I remember being a kid and thinking music was everything. I had no idea it could be this. What a gal.

    I always jam this a lot around the holidays- a stunning, super-melancholic seasonal classic.

    Blue is just amazing, it is one of those really special calm and delicate albums that express my feelings in a way I could never imagine, like Bruce Springsteen Nebraska and Jackson Browne For Every Man
