Today’s song is the lovely Joni Mitchell song from 1971 in which she laments on the end of a relationship as Christmas approaches. (Cheery, I know!) River has been covered by many artists, from Ronan Keating to Lea Michele, but I think my favourite cover is by Madeleine Peyroux. I hope you enjoy my version.
