Thats why I think its more okay to cover this song then the Beatles classics. This was made famous by a cover. It was not Janis's song. It is now the worlds song. The following are hands down my two favorite "Me and My Bobby McGee" covers, besides Janis these two powerful women take the cake in my book.
First is my girl Crystal Bowersox. Last night she showed all of the contestants on the damn American Idol why they should all just pack their bags now. Shes clearly got this in the bag. Her cover of this song just blew everyone away. Even Simon said it "You should not change one thing". And I agree. Amazeballs.
Now make sure you have the volume loud at the 1:25 part. She really kicks the song into high gear and shows her true spirit. love.
The second version of the song is from I singer who I think is HIGHLY underrated for her singing abilities. Pink has been hitting it big on the pop charts for years now and year after year she remains true to herself and her music. I can tell you that Pink has one of THE best voices in my generation. She can hit notes that Britney Spears dreams about and she does it all while being herself. Its refreshing and nice.
Check out her version of the classic song below!
