X Factor Contestant With AWESOME “Cry Baby” Cover | Society Of Rock Videos

We all know that there will never be another Janis Joplin. Like, ever. Her rebellious charm. Her raspy voice. Her intensity. And most of all, her soul. But once in a while a fan comes along and put on a magnificent rendition of a legend like Janis. Here is a clip from The X Factor that wowed so many who were watching. This is back from 2012 where Melanie Masson covers “Cry Baby” which is one of Janis’s hits. Note: This song was actually recorded by Garnet Mimms and the Enchanters, in 1963, but her version is probably the most popular.

Melanie is definitely paying tribute as you can see from her 70’s get up and style along with the intense vocals at around the 2:30 mark. Man, you can just feel it in your bones. The passion. The vibrations of a woman pouring out her heart. This is how songs like “Cry Baby” were meant to be performed. This is what Janis did. I’m pretty darn sure that she would have made Janis proud.

+ Crybaby lyrics +

Cry baby, cry baby, cry baby,
Honey, welcome back home.

I know she told you,
Honey I know she told you that she loved you
Much more than I did,
But all I know is that she left you,
And you swear that you just don’t know why,
But you know, honey I’ll always,
I’ll always be around if you ever want me
Come on and cry, cry baby, cry baby, cry baby,
Oh honey, welcome back home.

Don’t you know, honey,
Ain’t nobody ever gonna love you
The way I try to do ?
Who’ll take all your pain,
Honey, your heartache, too ?
And if you need me, you know
That I’ll always be around if you ever want me
Come on and cry, cry baby, cry baby, cry baby,
Oh daddy, like you always saying to do.

And when you walk around the world, babe,
You said you’d try to look for the end of the road,
You might find out later that the road’ll end in Detroit,
Honey, the road’ll even end in Kathmandu.
You can go all around the world
Trying to find something to do with your life, baby,
When you only gotta do one thing well,
You only gotta do one thing well to make it in this world, babe.
You got a woman waiting for you there,
All you ever gotta do is be a good man one time to one woman
And that’ll be the end of the road, babe,
I know you got more tears to share, babe,
So come on, come on, come on, come on, come on,
And cry, cry baby, cry baby, cry baby.

And if you ever feel a little lonely, dear,
I want you to come on, come on to your mama now,
And if you ever want a little love of a woman
Come on and baby baby baby babe babe baby now
Cry baby yeah.
