Many a Singer/Songwriter made a mark in the early 70’s, though few were as unique as Melanie. Her music (even when protest singing) had such a gentle quality that made audiences fall in love with her. Her biggest issue was her close association with the Flower Power Woodstock era, and when times changed, America did not look at her as someone capable of changing with them. Though she had considerable success for a time, she may not have had enough of an impact to crack the Hall.
