JANIS JOPLIN and The Holding Company – “Cheap Thrills”
Instrumental ( vocals guitar drums)
Whoa (many) whoas
yeah yeah (many)
come on (many) come on
gonna knock it to ya ,rock it to ya , sock it to ya , come on oh yeah
then a little operatic sing fest at the end
Whoo doggie! Man oh man ,oh man ,oh man, I haven’t heard that in a while! what a song, what a great song!
no lyrics all instrumental , listen to it – ya gotta before you die!
you’ll see what I mean that song is what rock at its best is all about – Janis Joplin was a great singer it is the quintessential song of its time for me, it captures the energy and feeling of that time – If a sentence could mirror that period it would be ” What the f— was that? I don’t know but it was great!”
