Most Woodstock-era Zoomers will remember her simply as “Melanie.”

We’ve learned that Melanie Safka has died.

She was known for “Lay Down – Candles in the Rain,” “Brand New Key” and “Look What They’ve Done to My Song Ma.”

Her passing was confirmed by her children although no official cause or circumstances were disclosed.

Melanie was one of a few solo female performers at Woodstock and wrote “Candles in the Rain” about the experience.

Word is, she was working on a brand new album as recently as last month.

Melanie Safka was 76.
