"The Ballad of Lucy Jordan" sung by Marianne Faithfull

Ballads are still being written. It's a living form in which many of the old ballads are still being modernised or updated. In this modern ballad a 37 year old disillusioned housewife from "A white surburban town" leaves her home to seek the life she might have had. This ballad features in the film, "Thelma and Louise" which has a similar theme. The ballad ends in an ambiguous way.
