Reuse: A side trip

Before continuing with the technical details, a brief look at reuse from both sides.

First listen to this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bcrEqIpi6sg (Joni Mitchell singing "Both Sides Now" in 1970)

And then to this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tKQSlH-LLTQ (Joni Mitchell singing "Both Sides Now" 30 years later

It's one thing to write the words; another thing entirely to have lived them. Enjoy.

The more recent performance is absolutely heartbreaking. I like it much better. Then again, I don't have to reconcile any feelings of nostalgia.
