Joni Mitchell needs no introduction. 

The generation-defining, Grammy-winning artist has been making music for half a century, and now we can celebrate her amazing career with Love Has Many Faces, a retrospective of 53 newly remastered love songs.

Here, three reasons Joni will forever be our she-ro. 

Her voice That timbre! That range! The self-described alto can drift into a gorgeous falsetto like it ain't no thang--and we wish she'd sing us to sleep every night.  

Her diversity of talents Voice aside, she produces her own albums, writes her own songs, is a master of piano and guitar, and designs her own album artwork. If that's not the mark of a true artist, we don't know what is. 

Her staying power At age 71, she's still recording, painting, inspiring and making us damn proud to be women. Here's hoping Ms. Mitchell doesn't slow down anytime soon. (Now get your mitts on the collection.)
