    This made me reach for mine off the shelf. I forgot she wrote in it:

    When I think of Joni I always think of "A Case of You" wrapped up in a blanket in a room I asked the church to paint lilac. I would play this song till the candle wouldn't drip anymore.

    I do too. It's a rare case of a cover that actually surpasses the original. I remember she said at the time that she felt like she should have written "A Case of You" herself, and it's the kind of statement I'd normally scoff at, but then I heard her cover and I was like "Yeah. Yeah, you kind of did...".
