Woman Sings Janis Joplin’s “Kozmic Blues” And You Will Fall To Your Knees With Respect

Woman Sings Janis Joplin’s “Kozmic Blues” And You Will Fall To Your Knees With Respect | Society Of Rock Videos

The Next Janis

Although no one can replace the beauty, angst, soul and bluesy pitch of beloved Janis Joplin, Gianna comes as close we have seen in quite awhile. Born with the ability to rock these timeless vocals in her socks, she annihilates this performance of “Kozmic Blues” on the Italy Voice.

“Time keeps moving on, friends they turn away, well, I keep moving on.”

As we like to think of this ballad as the realists’ anthem, Janis’s words represent looking positivity in dark situations that just don’t seem to work out and we can definitely relate.

Interesting Fact: “‘Kozmic Blues’ just means that no matter what you do, man, you get shot down anyway.” – Janis Joplin

We know that it is a major deal to make a comparison to the always great Janis Joplin, however, Gianna is the most impressed we have been listening to a Janis cover in a really long time.

We cannot help but be excited and know there are huge things in store for Gianna!

+ Kozmic Blues Lyrics +

Time keeps moving on,
Friends they turn away,
Well, I keep moving on
But I never found out why
I keep pushing so hard a dream,
I keep trying to make it right
Through another lonely day

Whoa don’t discover it lasts
Twenty-five years, uh honey just one night, oh yeah
Well I’m twenty-five years older now
So I know it can’t be right
And I’m no better baby and I can’t help you no more
Than I did when just a girl

But it don’t make no difference babe, no, no,
‘Cause I know that I could always try
It don’t make no difference baby, yeah
I’m gonna hold it now,
I’m gonna need it yeah,
I’m gonna use it till the day I die

Don’t, expect any answers, dear,
Well, I know that they don’t come with age, no, no,
I ain’t never gonna love you any better baby
I’m never gonna love you right
So you better take it now, right now, ohh

It don’t make no difference baby,
I know that I could always try
There’s a fire inside of every one of us
You’d better need it now,
I get to hold it yeah,
I’m gonna use it till the day I die

Don’t make no difference, babe, no, no, no,
And it never ever will, eh,
I wanna talk about a little bit of loving, yeah,
I get to hold it, baby,
I’m gonna need it now,
I’m gonna use it, say, aaaah

Don’t make no difference, babe, yeah,
Ah honey, I’d hate to be the one
I said you’re gonna live your life
And you’re better love your life
Or babe, someday you’re gonna have to cry.
Yes indeed, yes indeed, yes indeed,
Ah baby, yes indeed.

I said you, you’re always gonna hurt me,
I said you’re always gonna let me down,
I said everywhere, every day, every day
And every way, every way
Ah honey won’t you hold on to what’s gonna move
I said it’s gonna disappear when you turn your back
I said you know it ain’t gonna be there
When you wanna reach out and grab on

Whoa babe,
Whoa babe,
Whoa babe,
Oh but keep truckin’ on
Whoa yeah,
Whoa yeah,
Whoa yeah,
