She was the composer and singer of one of my favourite songs of all time - a genuine 60s hippie who performed at the original Woodstock festival.



Song starts at about 1:10.

I remember one song by Melanie, 'Look what they've done to my song, Ma'. I liked her voice.
You only pass through this life once, you don't come back for an encore.

A sad day for those who were young and hip in the 1960's.
Vale Melanie. What, indeed, have they done to our songs?
