Janis, me and Bobby McGee

Freedom's just another word for 'Nothing left to lose'

As sung by Janis Joplin (as opposed to Roger Miller) this lyric moves me. I love Joplin's voice anyway but this song Me and Bobby McGee is a wonderfully liberating tale of love, fate and capturing the moment. There's few singers of Joplin's stature in popular music these days.

This tune has circled my head since waking up this morning.
