MIXTAPE - track nine, volume four

joanna newsom - peach, plum, pear

i'll be honest, i've been trying to love her music for a long time. i love her - she's so cute and she dresses great and she plays the harp beautifully and she just seems like such a cool person and i want to be a big fan. but, i just can't easily listen to her. except for this song, it's BY FAR the best one i've heard from her yet.
here's a live version:

her favorite animal is a sea horse but she'd rather be a real horse. a wild horse:

you are after my own heart with joanna newsom. her music makes me grateful to be alive.

and this one is one of the all-time greats.

man, this mix is turning out to be a doozy also. :)

peach, plum, pear made me fall in love with her, too. although i had fallen in love with final fantasy's version of the song first. just keep listening to her and then one day, you will realize that you can't STOP.

i love how she trills "i like...senegaleeeeszzzhe music" in this video, i've been fond of imitating it to juliet quite often.
