Lay Down (Candles In The Rain) 45 by Melanie

Ater performaning at Woodstock, Melanie Safka wrote a ringing pop/folk song about the experience of singing before 400,000 people in the rain, while they held up candles.

“Lay Down (Candles In The Rain)” was a big hit reaching number six on the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Chart. It would go on to be adopted by the anti-war movement of the Vietnam War era.

It would be the signature song of her career and a memorable single release from the early 1970s.
