This article focuses on the musician Janis Ian and her music album "At Seventeen." She scored her first hit "Society's Child," in 1966. An earnest plea for the acceptance of interracial relationships that cleverly ends with the protagonist copping out and telling her to hit the road, Janis Ian was 15 when it was released. An accomplished player with a feel for the nylon string guitar, Ian is also honest with her pen. According to Ian, she loves "At Seventeen" all the time while it was being worked upon.
