Nature-inspired songs we just can't get enough of.
As much as the majority of us are quarantined within the confines of our home, we are, at least, allowed to go out from some fresh air and exercise. And it's important that you take advantage of that, provided, of course, that you don't flock to public spaces in droves. Find a quite space in nature to call your own and experience oneness with the world around you with these evocative songs.

David Crosby had claimed last week that the singer was unable to talk, but her conservator has corrected that assertion.
New reports indicate that Joni Mitchell is on the slow road to recovery after her hospitalisation earlier this year. Her conservator has revealed that her health is improving and that she is, in fact, able to speak.
Leslie Morris, her legal guardian and conservator, released a statement through Mitchell’s official website on Sunday (June 28th) providing some details on her condition for the first time in a while. She noted that, while Mitchell did indeed suffer an aneurysm, she is in fact “speaking well” and is expected to make a full recovery.

The guitarist said that, while Mitchell was at home and recovering, she was still "unable to speak".
Official updates concerning the condition of Joni Mitchell, who was hospitalised back in March, have been few and far between. However, fellow musician David Crosby has revealed that, while she is recovering at home, she is unable to speak.
In conversation with HuffPost Live, the 73 year old guitarist answered a Twitter question about Mitchell’s condition. “To my knowledge she is not speaking yet. She is home, she is in care, she is recovering,” he responded. “She took a terrible hit. She had an aneurysm, and nobody found her for a while. And she’s going to have to struggle back from it the way you struggle back from a traumatic brain injury.”

Initial reports on Tuesday suggested that the legendary singer's health had taken a turn for the worse, but they were unfounded, according to Mitchell's official website.
Despite reports suggesting that her health had deteriorated, iconic singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell is apparently not in a coma. TMZ reported on Tuesday afternoon that the 71 year old’s health had taken a turn for the worse after a lengthy stay in hospital, and that she was completely unresponsive and unable to take care of herself.
Leslie Morris, her close friend of 44 years, was reported to have filed documents to obtain legal conservatorship over her, but her official website said "she comprehends, she's alert and she has her full senses. A full recovery is expected." The documents simply relate to the power to make care decisions in the absence of 24-hour medical care once she's out of hospital.

Unfortunately, the Band's music didn't have much influence on the way future music would develop. But The Last Waltz, a concert film of the Band's 1976 farewell performance, remains an essential artwork. The film is a reminder that while they lasted, the Band (guitarist Robbie Robertson, drummer Levon Helm, keyboardists Garth Hudson and Richard Manuel, and bassist Rick Danko) was as good as any group in rock history.
