Music Monday: Janice Joplin

To me, her tragic end aside, Janis Joplin is about female empowerment. Her strong voice combined with her insouciant attitude towards life, makes this great music to listen to when encouragement is needed in difficult situations. Listen to Janice before a job interview, for example, and you will go in with an attitude of ownership, but a sense of perspective if it doesn't go well. And this particular song, Summertime has one of the best introductory guitar riffs ever.
