Re: Tom Petty vs Joni Mitchell

I added a poll.

I voted for Joni Mitchell. I'm a big Tom Petty fan but Joni is one of the best songwriters of all-time.

Re: Tom Petty vs Joni Mitchell

In my world it's....

Tom Petty > Everybody ever except for Neil Young.

Petty was my pop god years before I discovered modern pop. He rocked in the 70s, kept his cool in the 80s, and came back in the 90s with some of his best material ever, then kept on doing exciting new projects even into the 00s and 10s, just like Neil Young.

In my book there is no artist whose catalog can compare with that of Neil and Petty. And for me.... the more good material you have, the longer you last, period. You guys know me by now, I need something new and exciting to listen to. No matter how great In Utero and LA Woman and Ride the Lightning are -- and **** it, they're some of the most incredible albums anyone will ever craft -- I can't listen to the same album for 10 years and still get the kicks out of it.

Re: Tom Petty vs Joni Mitchell

I like Joni Mitchell's early work, Blue, Court & Spark and so on, but I can't listen to her more recent stuff, so Tom Petty it is.

Petty although I like Joni too.

I just think that Pettys music is easier to digest.

Re: Tom Petty vs Joni Mitchell

I very much like Joni Mitchell, but, again, Petty is one of my all-time favorite artists.

Accidentally voted for Joni, though.
