This is one of my favorite songs. I sometimes sing it just because. It is particularly good during these tough times for millionaires and billionaires or anyone who put all their eggs in the Madoff basket.
Hi Blue Gal , there should be more Janis heard in the world. My favorite is the old Rogers and Hart song Little Girl Blue, it's one you should know , listen and see here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FVpDOIPx_sY
I love Janis, have since I was 17 in 1970.
The only down side of Joplin: the number of women who think they can pour it out like she could. I've really come to appreciate singers who find the right place in a song to drop bombs (see also: k.d. lang).
You have a knack for picking the right song at the right time.
Janis was a woman who always gave more life and love and happiness than she got.
Stonypillow, yes but understand, artists do what they must, like the tree in the forest, you do what you must, for you, regardless of who hears, to put it in the air , to say it, is all that matters...........
I really look forward to hearing what you have to say. I do moderate comments, but non-spam comments will take less than 24 hours to appear... Thanks!
