Forty Winks


Reporting from London, Gerry tells us about a case of A Case of You: I went to see a play here in London at the Royal Court last week called Forty Winks. To my surprise it featured a little Joni: lights go down and out from the speakers we hear Joni singing ACOY, the whole of the song no less. A little later, after some dialogue we again hear ACOY this time playing backwards to signify a flashback in time. There was also a mention of her when one of the cast members enquires about the music playing, he is told "we don't have any Joni Mitchel I'm afraid". He was a tortured love soul, so it was only fitting he was a Joni fan. Read the BBC News review.
