Pink – Me and Bobby McGee – Janis Joplin Lives!

I found a reference to this video on Facebook … my boss back 25 years ago at Peat, Marwick and Partners posted it. It is a stunning video of Pink (she spells it
P!nk on her albums) singing this classic at the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame in 2003. And she channels Janice Joplin! It’s enough to choke you up it is so well done.

I rushed to check Pink out on YouTube and was was rather deflated when I heard all the roaring hard rock. A great voice rather drowned in a grinding sea of noise. Anyway, not my cup of tea.

What joy would it be to have her to a more laid back cover album of 70’s anthem in the style of Janis Joplin?
