Carousel of time

This is one of Joni Mitchell's early masterpieces. The first three verses are masterful tableaux of frozen time frames - each with clear metaphors for the age they describe. This, married to the chorus, which describes the relentless, inescapable "carousel of time" is given one of her most memorable (and simple) melodies. This song may still be playing on that carousel long after the first generations of children have forgotten the painted ponies.

Thanks to Alan Moorhouse for submitting the review.
