Janis Ian (born Janis Eddy Fink; April 7, 1951) is an American singer-songwriter who was most commercially successful in the 1960s and 1970s; her most widely recognized song, "At Seventeen", was released as a single from her 1975 album Between the Lines which reached number 1 on the Billboard chart. Born in 1951 in New York City, Ian entered the American folk music scene while still a teenager in the mid-1960s
On Aftertones, Janis Ian (guitar/piano/vocals) continued the artistic, and to a lesser extent, the commercial success she garnered on her previous effort Between The Lines (1975). Once again, she assembled some of the finest session musicians from the Big Apple to animate her intimately sensitive sonic portraits and caricatures. Part of Ian's enticement is the marriage between achingly beautiful melodies and thoroughly personalized lyrics. The album commences with the title track setting the tenor and sonic ambiance. The acoustic guitar and compact string section lend to "Aftertones" slightly baroque feel, which adds to the song's palpable isolation ("'Til all that's left to see are aftertones/I take them home/ We live alone"). The beautifully bitter "Love Is Blind," and the harrowing "Don't Cry, Old Man" are piercing in their honesty.

Lyrics to "Aftertones" song by Janis Ian: Sometimes it's all too much to say aloud The sound's a shroud The meanings crowd Sometimes the words. Till all that's left to me are aftertones I take them home We live alone But I remember chains of melody It pleases me - this song's for free. Within the memories of our life gone by Afraid to die, we learn to lie And measure out the time in coffee spoons In fading suns and dying moons. Till all that's left to see are aftertones And no one knows Where meaning goes But I remember chains of melody It pleases me - this song's for free. And ooh, I like the sound Of harmony from time to time I really do believe In some kind of tomorrow When it speaks to me. Submit Corrections
