IDQotM: Cyndi Lauper, "Carey"

Rarely does anyone do a cover worthy of Joni Mitchell, but this is it. I remember watching this tribute show on TV and getting all emotional. Cyndi is just amazing. I heard this performance was really the only one Joni liked the whole evening.

Collin: I think Mitchell is difficult to cover because she's so singular, it's rather like covering Leonard Cohen...the only other cover on that telecast that I even came close to liking was Krall's "A Case of You."

MoMa: I actually don't know that one...I'll have to check it out
