Folk Thursday: Melanie Safka

Listening to Melanie kind of makes my vocal cords hurt, but I love her anyway, and this video is worth watching for the audience alone. Could they be more Establishment, sitting there in their horn-rimmed glasses and Sunday best, clapping along awkwardly and looking confused? Bless their hearts, I don’t think this was exactly what they were expecting when they came to the show. Hilarious.

  1. Yes, funny, but they were getting into it! It would be more authentic and meaningful if the introduction wasn’t cut off, as is done in her “best of” and many online recordings. It was that intro on my sister’s album that really got to me!
