15. Joan As Policewoman
Joan As Policewoman, aka Joan Wasser, is someone that has always had pain and sadness projected onto her work by those seeking to feed off the fact Wasser was Jeff Buckley’s girlfriend. Yet, melancholia seems to suit her, with the majority of To Survive dealing with the loss of love and hope. Elsewhere, ‘To Be Lonely’ addresses a new relationship in a touchingly cynical way (“This is the one I will try to be lonely with”), whilst ‘Furious’ and the Rufus Wainwright assisted ‘To America’ deal with the frustration of politics.
