A Song For the 17th of the Month: "At Seventeen” by Janis Ian

Here's my salute to songs with numbers in them. Every day this month, I'll select a song with the number of the month in the title.

To celebrate the 17th day of the month, I was thinking about going with Stevie Nicks’ “Edge of Seventeen” or “Anthems for a Seventeen Year Old Girl” by Broken Social Scene. Or maybe even the scandalous “17” by Rick James. Instead I’ve selected the heartbreaking and beautiful “At Seventeen” by ‘70s singer Janis Ian. The mood of the song is very suitable for heading into Fall.

What songs do you like with "Seventeen" in the title? Leave ideas in the comments!
