Janis Joplin with Big Brother and the Holding Company – Coo Coo – Live
Coo Coo Live Performance By Janis & Friends
We just can’t get enough of our favorite gal, Janis Joplin. I know you’ll feel the same, and grow to love her even more after watching this live footage.
Like most of her songs, this one is blues, but what really stands out and grabs our attention is the intense jamming (what seems to be completely organic) going on here. It’s more upbeat, and has an intense arrangement. Big Brother and the Holding Company go hard and Janis even harder with those maracas.. I don’t think she could be more in the moment, and that is what we love about her!
Did You Know?
Janis’s ashes were poured int the deep blue sea. It is Stinson Beach where she was last remembered by only her parents and her aunt. It was a very private gathering and one thing for is, we all miss her!
+Coo Coo lyrics below +
Oh, the cuckoo, she’s a pretty bird, and she warbles when she flies
But she never hollers cuckoo till the fourth day of July.
Said Jack o’Diamonds, well Jack o’Diamonds, oh I know you of old,
Honey you robbed me of my silver and out of all my gold,
All of my gold, all of my gold.
Well, Jack o’Diamonds, oh Jack o’Diamonds, oh I know you of old,
Honey, you robbed me of my silver and out of all my gold.
Said the cuckoo, she’s a cruel bird, and she warbles when she flies
And every time that she passes, my true love says good-bye,
Well, says good-bye, well says good-bye,
Ooh, ooh …
