This week (January 19), Janis Joplin he would have turned 78 years old. That is why, to celebrate and honor the life and artistic legacy of the singer from Port Arthur, Texas, we decided to put together a list of five of her best songs.
This, one of the few songs Joplin has written, gets the record going Pearl with a great bang: it reminds the listener that it is, in fact, the queen of Rock n ‘roll. Furthermore, the track has a similar energy to the early Big Brother and The Holding Company albums with the same sophistication as his first solo work with the band Kozmic.
The song was recorded on the same day as “Me and Bobby McGee” and performed on Dick Cavett’s show, where Joplin explained that the song is about when men tell a woman that their relationship is over but that they don’t walk away. them and, in effect, take them hostage.
