Her song "Gracias a la vida", composed one year before her death, is one of the most covered latin american songs. Thank you to life, which has given me so much It gave me a heart, that causes my frame to shudder When I see the fruit of the human brain When I see good so far from bad When I see within the clarity of your eyes.

Gracias a la Vida (Violetta Parra) was a great song to begin with, and Joan makes it her own. The other songs are great as well. If you have any exposure to Spanish, you should be able to understand the songs as she has a clear way of presenting the lyrics with a fantastic voice. I love folk music, especially protest music, and this is an extremely good example of both. Joan Baez sings popular and classic Spanish songs in her gifted way. For more years than I can remember, I've played the record again and again. Joan Baez sings with such passion; she really feels the music and lyrics. She is a true legend, and "Gracias A La Vida" is one of her best.
