Joni the realest

I know that everyone already loves Joni Mitchell but since I've really started to listen to her I find that few things touch me the way her songs do.
I'm posting a song that's not even one of my favorites, even though it's fantastic from start to finish. There's this line in there that just gets me. The way she goes from "got germs" to "got Joni". Total momentary insanity and desperation expressed in a heartbreakingly beautiful way.

"...tell those girls that...you've got Joni.
She's coming back home."

"Blue Motel Room"
