The short but sweet opening to one of the great albums of the 70's. None of the sections are similar enough for repeats to be used so it is written out in "long form". Points of interest include the 3 against 4 rhythms between the hands, the parallel (not relative) major/minor tonalities of E and E minor (by now a familiar feature of Joni's composing, as well as Paul McCartney's incidentally) and the frequent use of suspended "chords of inquiry," as she called them.
