Gianna Nannini vs.
Janis Joplin
Gianna Nannini sings a song made ​​famous by Janis Joplin, "Me and Bobby McGee"" "Io e Bobby McGee", which recorded a few months before his death.
The history of this song is very special: Bobby McGee's actually supposed to be a female character, that is precisely Janis Joplin: in fact this song wrote by Kris Kristofferson, Jane's boyfriend dedicated it to her, but it was only thanks to the extraordinary voice of Janis Joplin became famous in 1970.

I personally really like the version of Gianna Nannini, here live in a concert of 1981, which also has been translated into Italian very well, this is perhaps one of his best songs, along with "America".
Moreover, this song has been ranked among the 500 most beautiful rock songs of all time ...
