The Young and Melancholic Girl: Janis Joplin (2)

Well, what were we talking about? Of course from Janis Joplin …


As we said, she was a young and melancholic girl. She was the legendary and unruly name of blues music.


She was Janis Joplin...


We continue from where we left off with the second part of the life adventure that we described in our first blog.


Janis Joplin had always tried to pursue goodness, despite all her searches and regularities, she had always been in a purification process. She was not at all satisfied with her obsession with alcohol and drugs. Joplin  frequently experienced decision-making processes in her life and made new decisions to get out of the misty tunnel she is in.


Despite her restless and active life, she was actually a successful student in school life. Joplin, who lived a life between the tides, could not find the happiness she was looking for in her small town, where she left school and returned. Joplin was back in California. This second comeback would actually be a turning point in her career. Under the direction of her friend and manager, Chet Holmes, Joplin found himself on stage as the lead singer of the band "Big Brother and the Holding Company".


At the Monterey International Pop Festival held in California in 1967, the band made a big splash with their song "Ball and Chain". The band released their second album, Cheap Thrills, which hit the charts in 1968. Leaving the band after this album, Joplin took a step into his solo career and turned to soul and blues genre again. She made her first solo album “I Got Dem Ol' Kozmic Blues Again Mama!” with Kozmic Blues Band. Janis Joplin was at the top with the song "Try" in this album.


On the other hand, Joplin, who experienced many ups and downs in her life, left behind all the addictions that brought her down in 1969 until the recordings of the album "Pearl" started....

While preparing for this album, her addictions came to light for the last time, under the illusion of being inspired.  As a result of an overdose of heroin, Janis Joplin died at the Landmark Motor Hotel on October 4, 1970, at the age of 27.


Janis Joplin found fame as the "White Woman of the Blues". In 1971, his song "Me & Bobby McGee" from the album "Pearl" peaked at number one on the charts.


She was a legendary soloist. Besides, she was a very good songwriter. Janis Joplin has been a strong voice of the women's rebellion as well as her philosophy of life.


Let's whisper these words in her ear while she sleeps:


“It’s gonna feel just like those raindrops do

When they’re falling down, honey, all around you.

Ah my unhappy, my unlucky

And my little, oh girl blue….”
