[SINGER-SONGWRITER] “I learned the truth at seventeen / That love was meant for beauty queens.” So reads the headline of Janis Ian’s website in an endless montage of her lyrics and photos, most from a time when hats were frumpier and pants were flared. She can be forgiven the nostalgia. In 1967, barely a teenager, Ian wrote and recorded a single, “Society’s Child,” that was as controversial as it was successful. A decade later, she saved herself from one-hit wonderdom with the Grammy-winning “At Seventeen.” Ian’s folk pop and politics cut an unforgettable swath through the style of the ’70s, but she’s not ready to be made completely irrelevant yet. In addition to being lionized in Japan, the audio version of her 2009 autobiography, Society’s Child, just won a Grammy.
