Janis Joplin (19 Jan 1943 – 4 October 1970)

I love how when she’s not singing, she looks so ordinary. The way she wrings her hands and looks around like it’s the first time she’s been on a stage.  And then, she steps to the mike and unleashes the most extraordinary vocals.  This song has always been one of my favorites. This video is from the Tom Jones show in 1969.
