Both Sides Now – Judy Collins (1968)

Posted: August 23, 2012 in 1968 - 1979

I was first exposed to Judy Collins’ recording of this song released in 1968, but the song was actually written by Joni Mitchell, who released her own classic version of the song on her Clouds album in 1969. I can recall sitting on my Mom’s lap when I was only 2 or 3 years old and being absolutely mesmerized by the beautiful melodies and vocals of this song. My mom says she would often turn on music when I was crying because it immediately made me stop  — I would just listen intently to the music. This is my first real memory and beginning of the soundtrack to my life.  I guess that would make it song # 1 on ‘The List’.
