Joanna Newsom: This Side of the Blue

I chose a Joanna Newsom song, Baby Birch, back in 2010 and here is another. This Side of the Blue is best known for its use in an Orange commercial that seemed to be aimed at getting us to use our phones less.

This Side of the Blue, which is taken from her 2004 album The Milk-Eyed Mender, seems to begin in the classroom and ends who knows where.

As I heard Guy Garvey point out on BBC Radio 6, no one bothered to remove the hum from the electric piano at the beginning and end, but you wouldn't be without it now.
