Half Moon by Janis Joplin live on The Dick Cavett Show | Society Of Rock Videos

Janis gets soulful once again with Dick Cavett!

Half Moon” quickly become one of Joplin’s more popular hits. Every time Janis steps on stage- she showcases incredible vocal talent, and her soul is lit with explosive fire.

She’s exhilarating, a breath of fresh air- she is the Queen of Blues. She brings life to everything she touches.

Her voice – that high, husky, earthy, explosive tone – remains among the most distinctive and galvanizing in pop history.

Time magazine called Joplin “probably the most powerful singer to emerge from the white rock movement“, and Richard Goldstein of Vogue Magazine said that Joplin was “the most staggering leading woman in rock… Janis Joplin can sing the chic off any listener.”

Joplin frequented The Dick Cavett show through the years-  he really had a way of making her open up in their brief interviews. And, its always so thrilling to watch. Enjoy!

+Half Moon lyrics below+

Half moon, night time sky,
Seven stars, heaven’s eyes.
Seven songs on seven seas
Just to bring all your sweet love home to me.

Hey, you fill me like the mountains,
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,
You fill me like the sea, Lord,
Not coming past but still at last
Your love brings life to me,
Your love brings life to me, hey!

Rings of cloud and arms aflame,
Wings rise up to call your name.
Sun rolls high, Lord, it burns the ground
Just to tell about the first good man I found.

Yeah, you fill me like the mountains,
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,
You fill me like the sea, Lord,
Not coming past but still at last
Your love brings life to me,
Your love brings life to me.
Oh oh oh oh oh oh yeah!

Half moon on night time sky,
Seven stars, heaven’s eyes.
Seven songs on seven seas
Just to bring all your sweet love home to me.

Hey baby, you fill me like the mountains,
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,
You fill me like the sea, Lord,
Not coming past honey still at last
Lord, you fill me like the mountains,
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,
You fill me like the sea, Lord,
Not coming past but still at last

Hey, you fill me like the mountains,
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,
You fill me like the sea, oh Lord,
You’re not coming past, honey, still at last
Your love brings life to me,
Your love brings life to me,
Your love… la la la la la, la

Won’t you bring life to me
I said you’re gonna ride around
When I’m on a little home babe,
Bring it on home, you bring it on home,
Bring it on home, bring it on home,
I said your love brings life to me, yeah.
