DIE US-AMERIKANISCHE SÄNGERIN UND SONGWRITERIN MELANIE IST GESTORBEN


25.01.2024 Die am 3. Februar 1947 in Astoria (Queens, New York City) als Melanie Anne Safka geborene US-amerikanische Sängerin und Songwriterin Melanie (Bild) ist am 23. Januar 2024 in Nashville (Tennessee) gestorben. Sie wurde 1969 durch ihren Auftritt beim Woodstock-Festival bekannt. Melanie "etablierte sich nachdrücklich mit genial-schlichten Songs und unverwechselbarem Timbre im Folk-Pop-Genre" (Taurus Press Verlag). Mit "Brand New Key" gelang ihr zum Jahreswechsel 1971/72 ein Nummer-eins-Hit in den USA. In Grossbritannien, Deutschland und der Schweiz hatte sie 1970 einen Top-Hit mit der Coverversion des Rolling-Stones-Songs "Ruby Tuesday". Ihr weltweit erfolgreichster Hit war "What Have They Done to My Song, Ma".

Melanie, ‘Brand New Key’ Singer Who Played Woodstock, Dies at 76

Melanie, the husky-voiced singer and songwriter who was one of the surprise stars of the Woodstock music festival in 1969 and two years later had a No. 1 single with the disarmingly childlike “Brand New Key,” died on Tuesday. She was 76.

Melanie, born Melanie Safka in 1947, was only 22 but already a presence on the New York folk scene when she appeared at Woodstock. She was one of only three women who performed unaccompanied at the festival — and, as she later recalled, she was petrified at the thought of performing in front of a crowd vastly bigger than the coffeehouse audiences she was used to.
