Golden Oldie : Melanie

3 Oct

This is way before my time, and probably before most of my readers were born. Coming from Melanie‘s 1972 album, Garden In The City, it may already be familiar to contemporary audiences as the excellent sample in Hilltop Hoods backpacker hip hop classic Nosebleed Section (Highly Recommended!).

However, I think it’s about time to give this song it’s own platform. It’s fairly obscure, but it could have been one of the biggest tracks of it’s era, with it’s soulful vocals, and it’s strongest feature – the fantastic tune, which will have you whistling along in no time. It’s innocent and happy for me, it says the start of Spring, I don’t quite know why but the high pitched squeaks just picture the early morning sun rise on a fresh spring morning for me, cliched as that is. I don’t possess the vocabulary to properly do this track justice, so have a listen below.
