Was thinking "Spider Pig" -- also one of the few examples that extols the virtue of the spider instead of using it as a metaphor for manipulation or appetite. There should be more songs about how great spiders are.

Boomers will also remember that Janis Ian was musical guest on the very first ever Saturday Night Live. Her performances on that show are worth checking out, they were shot in a more intimate way than they do it now on SNL, on a big stage with the big band behind the artist. She introduced her song “At Seventeen” which later became a huge hit. She was 24.

coincidently Janis Ian right now on FB:

If you're going to come on my page and argue that Greta Thunberg is "only sixteen" and a "tool of the left" and should "stay home and have a childhood", best to keep in mind that I wrote "Society's Child" at 14, recorded it at fifteen, and had a national hit record with it at 16. Which, at 16, left me called "nigger lover", had people spitting at me in the street, trying to trip me as I walked on stage, sending me death threats, and in general exposed to much of the worst humanity had to offer.

I was no "tool of the left". I was a songwriter talking about what I saw as wrong in the world. I was doing my job as an artist. She is doing her job as a citizen.
