Great Love Songs (22)

During this week's Monday Night With Nige, our resident music aficionado Ruby pointed out that Monday 4th was the 40th anniversary of the death of Janis Joplin.  Naturally, we had to commemorate this unhappy landmark by digging out what little of her stuff we have on the 12 Square Metres playlist (Note to JK: we need more!).

Although a few days late, here's a further tribute now: her classic Piece Of My Heart, from a late-60s TV show, with Big Brother and The Holding Company (an exception to my usual rule: an awful band name, but still a GREAT band!!).

And here's a live version from Woodstock, accompanied by a montage of still photographs.

[Some additional treats for you: three more storming TV performances, of Cry, Baby!, To Love Somebody, and Try (Just A Little Bit Harder).]
