Candles in the Rain is singer Melanie's third album. Released in 1970, the album produced Melanie's first Top Ten single in North America, "Lay Down (Candles in the Rain)", which was inspired by the crowd's reaction to her performance at Woodstock. The cover of the Rolling Stones' 1967 song "Ruby Tuesday" reached the Top Ten in the United Kingdom. All songs written by Melanie Safka except where noted. Candles in the Rain" 1:42.

Melanie’s iconic 1970 tribute to her experience performing in the previous year’s Woodstock Festival. The song became one of the peace anthems of the anti war movement. She collaborated with The Edwin Hawkins Singers who had a hit the previous year with the spiritual Oh Happy Day. Her unique singing style, change in pitches throughout the song and a forceful backup by The Edwin Hawkins singer established the song and the singer as the soul of the anti war musical scene. From her third and most successful and acclaimed album, Candles in the Rain

Candles' in the rain-- War-Zonals' driving the shadow O'er forever comes the pain. I bought this album when just released, an advantage of working in the only record shop in my hometown in Australia on Saturday mornings and Thursday nights when I was in high school. I had the best job of all my mates. I still have this album (and about 300 others) that I bought through this time. All still immaculate condition but still regularly listened to, looked after and treasured. you cant ask for more than that as an artist.

almost 50 years since I first heard this record and even today Melanie's voice still gives me chills and brings tears to my eyes. if you have never heard "Lay Down (Candles in the Rain)" or her cover of "Ruby Tuesday", do yourself a favor and listen to this. No one has said anything yet. In Library (1).
