View Full Version : Any Janis Joplin fans here?

I never thought I'd be into Janis Joplin, but I heard Whoopi Goldberg singing 'Piece of My Heart' which at first I thought, what's she doing singing a Faith Hill song, then mom told me that it was a Janis Joplin song.

She's got some pretty heavy stuff. Mean guitar licks too:) I love it. I really love 'Try (Just A Little Bit Harder)' That is awesome. When I was younger all I listened to was country, and over the years, my horizon has broadened.

Alicia? NOBODY sings "Piece of My Heart" like Janis Joplin!! That's the tune that really does it for me by her! :) "Bobby McGee" is good, but there's no comparison.

I really love 'Ball and Chain.' That song is so freakin' awesome!!! Half of its coolness is that you can't understand a word she's saying. I even got lyrics and they helped some, but not enough.

My name had a question mark after it, is that because you're surprised at my musical likings? I never thought I'd be into Janis Joplin. Or Glenn Miller, for that matter.

I love Janis Joplin!

I cringe every time I hear Faith sing "Piece Of My Heart."

She was one of the best!!

And I agree Ann. Faith really does not to that song justice
