Joni Mitchell turns 68 today, let's celebrate with some covers

The incomparable Canadian songstress Joni Mitchell turns 68 today. And while her own stirring music certainly stands proudly on its own, some of the most famous recordings of her songs have been done by other musicians. The list of artists who have covered Mitchell's songs over the years is a long and curious one (Leonard Nimoy, Jim Nabors, and Robert Downey, Jr.), but there are indeed some great covers of Joni's songs to be found out there. And for her 68th birthday, we've collected a few of the best in celebration of her impressive, inspiring career. Happy birthday, Joni!

James Blake - "A Case Of You"

Cat Power - "Blue"

Annie Lennox - "Ladies Of The Canyon"
