Old School Fridays: Child Singers

The last two weeks have been so busy with work and other stuff that I forgot to post last Friday. But I'm not forgetting again. This week is Child Singers and my choice is Janis Ian. This video is from the Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour and she was 16 when she performed. Janis was a singer that sang of subjects that those older than she was rarely touched.

This meme was developed by Marvalus View and Ms. Grapevine. The rules are simple:

1. Anyone can participate; any music genre
2. Old School is defined as music created before 1999
3. No offensive words allowed, please use edited radio version
4. Post a video of your favorite Old School song to take us back down memory lane
5. Add your name to the meme list so that others can check you out
6. Have fun & don't forget to leave comments for other participants

I love this era. Well, I use to always watch the Smothers Brothers. She is a very talented woman

She does have a nice voice, and when I saw Janis, I thought it was going to be Janis Joplin. I was trying to remember if she was a child singer, but as I read closer and I watched the video I saw that it was Janis Ian...

Excellent choice! It's a shame that "Society's Child" has fallen off the playlists of many oldies stations.

Marvalus said...

Oh that was great!

Excellent choice!
