Ally McBeal

Having a wonderful time watching TV, Emiliano noticed some Joni content on this show: This is one: Episode number: 45. "Love Illusions" #2M22 [AM222] (aired May 17, 1999) Written by: David E. Kelley Directed by: Allan Arkush (this one's where Billy & Georgia do it in that pop. WC and Richard & Ling get laid for first time) Ally & John are defending one woman accusied by her husband of fraud , 'cause she confesses to her pc diary to his imagined, long time friend that there never wasn't any passion in her marriage. Well, this makes Ally questioning again if there aren't true loves... she remembers her childhood, her parents arguing in anger (I suppose this is a redundance, sorry)... Then we hear: Rows and flows of angel hair And ice cream castles in the air And feather canyons everywhere I've looked at clouds that way But now they only block the sun They rain and snow on everyone So many things I would have done But clouds got in my way I've looked at clouds from both sides now From up and down, and still somehow It's cloud illusions I recall I really don't know clouds at all --------------------------Performed by Vonda Shepard (sp?) ( I guess*she* didn't release it) Obviously, after winning the absolution for her client, episode ends Ally walking home hearing: Moons and Junes and Ferris wheels The dizzy dancing way you feel As ev'ry fairy tale comes real I've looked at love that way But now it's just another show You leave 'em laughing when you go And if you care, don't let them know Don't give yourself away I've looked at love from both sides now From give and take, and still somehow It's love's illusions I recall I really don't know love at all
