Finding music in the public domain means listening to plenty of music from the past.. I learned the musicians,whose names change  but the message remains the same. Bessie Smith, came into my world when Janis Joplin bought her a headstone, before Janis died of an overdose at 27(seems like the lifespan of the driven. )  Bessie has the voice. This song is gr8.  Written by Charles Warfield and Clarence Williams in 1919 and Louie Prima and Frank Sinatra also sang this song. ” I learned a lot studying this song’s past.
