Janis Joplin — "Piece of My Heart" (Live)

In Stockholm, 1969. The video's murky, but this has by far the best sound quality of all the live versions I've found. Goddam, I love her singing this song.

Godspeed You Black Emperor — "The Dead Flag Blues"

A fan video for the track. Some of their music appears in the film 28 Days Later. Not for all tastes, but it's striking and memorable, and they have a devoted following. Here's their Wiki entry.

Willie Nelson, Diana Krall and Elvis Costello — "Crazy"

Willie just turned 75 yesterday, so one of his most famous songs seemed like a good choice. Happy Birthday, Willie!
