Melanie-Lay Down/Candles in the Rain-1970
People can joke all they want about FACEBOOK and what it's doing to real world friendships. All I know is that I have actually become friends--with real interaction, not just in name only--with some of the coolest folks there from Fred Hembeck and Bill Mumy to Daerick Gross and a whole bunch of people I'd never even heard of before. And the other day, Melanie became my friend! This was her big break-through song and one of the earliest songs I remember from when I started taking my AM transistor radio to bed with me to listen to WSAI in 1970!
