Me and Bobby McGee - a great song, best known as a Janis Joplin tune, which she recorded shortly before her death in 1970 and went to number one (and became her only number one single) posthumously.
But it’s easy to forget, or not know, that it was actually written by Kris Kristofferson and that Bobby was a girl.
The song has been recorded or performed by quite a range of artists over the years. This playlist includes versions by Johnny Cash, The Grateful Dead and Pink.
But my favorite version isn’t on this playlist; it’s Kris Kristofferson performing it at the Isle of Wight Festival in 1970 - well, performing part of it. Go watch here.
