Covered: Joni Mitchell's 'River'

Joni Mitchell will forever be one of those veteran artists that I have total respect for, yet never spend proper time and effort to delve into her catalogue, for I don't know where to start and when to stop. However, 'River' was undoubtedly a non-traditional masterpiece, a Christmas song that's not actually about Christmas, and more remarkably, a solemn one. Many artists, mostly female, have had their ways with it, and here are a few notable versions. Hope you all are having a wonderful time.

The original

Sarah McLachlan's

Tori Amos's
Madeleine Peyroux's
