A good friend of mine is having a birthday very soon, and has been saying for ages she wants 2 CDs of greatest hits by Dusty Springfield and Janis Joplin. I was thinking I would do them up myself, and use that money to buy her something nicer than CDs. So I need some suggestions as to what songs you would regard as being essential for a "Best of" CD of the 2 artists above.
I am drawing a total blank (almost) for both. All I can think of is:
* Son of a preacher man
* Me and Bobby McGee
* Another little piece of my heart
* Mercede Benz (my cousin who is about the same as Janis in stature and voice can sing this better than Janis herself....IMHO).

Your version of the lyrics isn't too far off. I have the White Album here, and have just put it on...my singing the song didn't quite help to clarify ....this is what I hear:
flew in from Miami Beach BOAC didn't get to bed last night..on the way the paper bag was on my knee man I had a dreadful flight....I'm back in the USSR....you don't know how lucky you are boy....back in the U.S.S.R.
And before anyone says that I should know everything about Dusty Springfield (may she RIP) and her music, I can only say that this is the 21st century....we don't worship Dusty....we worship ABBA and Kylie
