Janis Joplin Lyrics


"I'll tell you 'bout Texas Radio and the Big Beat... I'll
tell you 'bout the hopeless night Wandering the Western
dream Tell you 'bout the maiden with raw iron soul" -- Jim
Morrison, "The Wasp"

The Cosmic Giggle must have been in full-tilt hysterics on
January 19, 1943 when the oil refinery seaport of Port
Arthur, Texas, won the heavenly crapshoot as the birthplace
of rock & roll's first female superstar, Janis Joplin. In
retrospect, Port Arthur's most famous daughter both defied
and defined the Texas town that raised, rejected, More...

    ------ About the song Me & Bobby McGee performed by Janis Joplin

The songs of the sixty's and what the young people went through the killings of the Kennedy's and King, The Nam war, and at Kent State no other generation has ever had to endure. the music is what kept me going.

    ------ About the song Me & Bobby McGee performed by Janis Joplin

I am so pleased to find this forum / site? I am now retired, but I am still teaching students in the art of maintenance engineering. I am not well conversed in the rudiments of the Internet, but I stumbled upon this site & it grabbed my attention. Upon a student presenting me with a finished or partially finished project I have a habit of saying, (Yeah, that's a Bobby McGee). Meaning, It's good enough for me. It's odd how some song lyrics seem to come and get forgotten but others stick in your brain and become a part of common language! I love that song and often find it's one of those tunes you can't get out of your head. Even after all these years!

    ------ About the song Me & Bobby McGee performed by Janis Joplin

1970 and was hitchin' North from LA to kick a light habit. Got picked up by a big tricked out truck with 5 or six good people on the ride. Stopt for the night in Big Sur and out came the guitar and harp. Guy played while his girlfriend,Bobby,blew. She was about 17 and from Lodi. She was running from a beater Dad. What a night of sweet music and free people I will not forget. Times best ...and worst but nothing but free. Now feelin' good just not enough not no more...Janis, I hear you still...

    ------ About the song Son of A Preacher Man performed by Janis Joplin

Janis Joplin never recorded the song. This error is probably due to a mislabeling of Dusty Springfield's version.

I am a collector of Joplin memorabilia. I believe I have every piece of recorded Joplin artifacts from 1962 Bars and coffee houses through the time of her death. Movies, documentary articles, interviews, TV appearances, biographies, released and unreleased music, and concert coverage.

Not only would I bet my life she never recorded this song I know her personality too well to accept the idea of recording it ridiculous. The song does not reflect anything Joplin believed in or stood for and is completely inconsistent with anything she ever recorded.

I like the song, Dusty and many others have made fine covers of it. But Janis certainly never did.

This song is my Jam. But only by Janis. No one else even comes close to doing it justice. It is so very sad that such an amazing talent wws taken away so early in life. Janis you are missed.

    ------ About the song Bye, Bye Baby performed by Janis Joplin

This song is exactly where I am in my current relationship. They always say not to make someone a priority when you are just an option to them...I've had the live version on repeat all day. "I get the feeling I could chase you clean on into fall, and wind up staying put out, put down, strung out and stoned..." It's hard to give up sometimes, though...

the rise of Lucifer | Reviewer: charlie price
    ------ About the song Summertime performed by Janis Joplin

The song is a prophecy of the last days.
The song is about the destruction of the church system.To bring in one world order.The rise of Lucifer.Its saying to those who love Lucifer don't worry when judgment comes you'll rise from the ashes to the sky. The sky: satan is the prince & power of the air. Babylon is fallen is fallen in order for there to be one world order they must destroy all religions & all goverments world wide. Take down christain church & American goverment & you'll take down everyone else. The USA will be passed off as the whore of babylon. Janis called herself the whore of babylon.Her friends called her pearl the church is called a pearl in the bible. God says his church has the forehead of a whore. Jeremiah 3:3. Babylon is not just America or the church all goverements all religion christain included are babylon mass media also makes up the whore of babylon.Never forget that. Satan will rule regin as king from Jerusalem. Jerusalem is the real babylon ...
