Link four in a chain of four.
Songs that tug at the heartstrings. Songs that stir the emotions. The great thing about Honey is that while admittedly slightly cheesy – it still has great emotional power. However with At Seventeen by Janis Ian we are on a different plane, with a song of enormous critical acclaim, and strong resonance with audiences down the years.
I remember becoming interested in Janis Ian at university, about five years after At Seventeen was released in 1975. On the strength of the single I bought the album – Between the Lines. It’s strong throughout and is recommended.
