Take Another Little Piece of My Heart Now, Baby...

It's Joplin's screaming, seriously. I mean she's bluesy, but the guttural emotion in those screams toward the end of "Piece of My Heart" is simply unmatched. I've been enjoying this song more recently since listening to Chrystal Bowersox sing it (posted here previously). And 100.3 The Sound played it during my drive time the other day. Enjoy:

From the comments at the second video, "This song is brilliant. Its a metaphor for intense love that you know is bad for you but you keep coming back for more."

That's it for me tonight. Check out
Ken Davenport, Right Klik, The Other McCain, Theo Spark, and Washington Rebel.

Janice always rocked. She was among the best of the era. Unfortunately, she couldn't rock with life.
