Day 4 of the 30 day music challenge. A song that makes me sad. I feel like I should add a little explanation to this one. I had a poet friend who loved Janis. Had being the operative word here. Our friendship didn't end. His life did. Whenever I hear Janis sing this song or "Piece of My Heart" it reminds me of him. I see again his too-long trousers, his stylish fedora, his tweed jacket and slightly slouched stance. So, this song has multiple layers of meaning for me. "Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose [...]" It's easy to take people for granted, to think that we'll always have time with them, but sometimes that's just not the case.
