I know it doesn't work this way, but if I could enshrine her just for her vocal on Leonard Cohen's "Who By Fire", I would.

Although Linda Ronstadt and ONJ were riding high on the charts in 1975, it was Janis Ian who won the 1975 Best Pop Vocal Performance Female Grammy. And she did it with a self-penned song, "At Seventeen" The two aforementioned ladies didn't write their own songs. Janis Ian was also the first musical guest on "SNL" in 1975.

Janis Ian wrote and recorded one of the most important songs in the history of Rock and Roll - Society's Child. At 14 no less! So, what does it take to get her into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame?
