Janis Ian
"At 17"

This is my attempt to resurrect singer/songwriter/composer Janis Ian. While she might not be on the top of everyone's lists, she had an enduring effect and influence on many of the women artists I love. Her first hit was in 1966 (at the age of 15); the controversial "Society's Child" was a tale of interracial love. This particular song (her biggest hit and part of the record that garnished her with two Grammys) uncompromisingly and wittily expresses a seldom-heard angst.
