For Free

Posted by shanoah on September 7, 2009

Well, I was trying to come up with a good post for Labor Day. After rejecting several ideas, I gave up, and decided to post this.

No real tangible relation to my last post. This is a song called For Free, by Joni Mitchell. This song seems to me to be about commercialism, though that might just be where I approach it from. Being an open source advocate, the refrain “He was playing real good, for free” takes a different meaning with me.

Besides which, it’s just this pretty, bittersweet song…
