Click to listen to Janis Joplin's 'Move Over (Take 13)'

This previously unreleased recording of Janis Joplin performing "Move Over" is featured on The Pearl Sessions, a new collection of outtakes, live recordings, mono single mixes and assorted rarities made at the time the singer recorded Pearl, her posthumously released masterpiece. This run through the album's opening track is raw and loose – it may not be flawless, but it captures the natural soul of Joplin and her band. The Pearl Sessions will be in stores on April 17th, but you can stream "Move Over (Take 13)" here today.

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
