Covid Island Discs
Day 216: At Seventeen, Janis Ian
So yesterday I posted a song (Vincent by Don Mclean) which was chosen by our English teacher as her contribution to a writing exercise she set the class where we had to write an essay about two of our favourite songs.
This song was the second one she chose and I must confess at the time I thought she was brave to share a song which actually made her quite vulnerable to a class of all boys given its lyrical content. It is however, a very beautiful song that I am sure many women (and let’s face it men) can relate to.
