“Me And Bobby McGee.”

Me And Bobby McGee, Janis Joplin

They’d never have let her succeed in the music industry today, you know.  Which probably means that she wouldn’t have died so young, then, so I dunno how you’d score that.

    This is in my top ten songs of all time, and my second-favorite cover (right behind Jimi Hendrix, _All Along The Watchtower_). You can tell that a cover song is done really really well when you don’t even think of it as a cover.

  • Luke says:

    Succeed is such a flexible word.
    I think she’d be able to sign with a Rounder Records sub-division, and have Susan Tedeschi levels of success.
    But is being a accomplished musician and perennial grammy nominee “success”, if almost no one knows who you are?
