"A Case of You" is a B-side from Tori Amos's 1994 album Under the Pink.

Background Edit

"A Case of You" was originally written by Joni Mitchell and released on her 1971 album Blue. Tori's cover was released on the "Cornflake Girl" UK Limited Edition CD single.[1]

When asked by Hot Press in 1994 why she chose to cover the song, Tori explained that "Joni was part of my life from the moment I heard her", and furthermore, that "on the ["Cornflake Girl"] single I want to move from the Keith Jarret jazz plus reggae undertones in "Cornflake Girl" into Joni's "A Case of You" and make it a seduction, heightening the undertone that was always there, when a woman sings to a man, 'I could drink a case of you!'".[2]

In 2012, Joe Vallese of PopMatters listed Tori's rendition of "A Case of You" as one of her best covers.[3]

Live performances Edit

Tori first performed her cover of "A Case of You" during the 1994 Under the Pink Tour and has played it during many of her tours since.[4]
