REVIEWS
Average points: 5 (Reviews: 75)
*****
Kraftvoller Gospel-Folk Song. 1970 der erste Hit für Melanie in den USA: Platz 6. Viele denken das sie eine Sängerin der 60s ist, sie fing aber erst so richtig an mit ihren Erfolgen, eben in diesem Jahr. Sehr schöner stimmungsvoller Titel, unterstützt durch die Edwin Hawkins Singers ("Oh Happy Day").
*****
Feiner Song, gut gemacht! Schöne Melodie, gut gesungen, mit der nötigen Portion Melancholie... Gefällt mir!
******
Ich liebte diese Frau ;-)
*****
Starkes Debüt mit bemerkenswerten Bildern, # 6 in den USA Mitte 1970.
******
WOW!!!!!!!!!! This really a nostalgic song. Back to the Flower Power & Gospelsound.

Erinnert mich an Gospel-Songs. SUPER-Stimme von ihr. Knapp keine 6.
******
Toller song ganz klare 6*
******
Einer von Melanies schönsten Stücken, mit den Edwin Hawkins Singers als Hintergrundschor. Schöner Text, schöne Melodie und für ihre Verhältnisse relativ gut gesungen. Kurzum, "Lay Down" ist ein zeitloser Klassiker, für den man einfach 6 Sterne geben muß.
******
Flower Power at it's best !<br>Vielleicht ihr bester Song neben "Ruby Tuesday"
******
Diese Single schlug ein und begründete ihren Ruhm in den frühen 70ern. Ihre gebrochene Stimme klingt hier so im Chor kraftvoll wie selten hervor. Besitzt beste Gänsehautqualität.
*****
habe ich trotz aller liebe wirklich laange gebraucht, und auch heute ist der refrain (wo die singers dominieren) das schwächste an den song! #1 hit!
******
klassiker...
******
wurde schon alles gesagt...ein richtiger klassiker
******
wunderbar

sehr gut

... einfach immer wieder schön anzuhören. Einer der besten Songs von Melanie Safka.
******
klasse Zusammenarbeit zwischen Melanie und den Edwin Hawkins-Singers, höre ich immer wieder gerne
******
Ohne Frage eines ihrer allerstärksten Lieder! Auch ich runde in diesem Fall mal sehr gerne zur (knappen) Höchstwertung auf...
******
▓ Prachtige gospelplaat van "Melanie & The Edwin Hawkins Singers" uit eind februari 1970 (Holland) !!! De plaat was in de lente van 1970 een groot succes in de Nederlandse hitlijsten van maart, april & mei 1970 !!! En terrecht vind ik persoonlijk !!! Vandaar de 6 sterren !!! (NL Top 40: 13 wk / # 1) !!!<br><br>Clip: http://youtube.com/watch?v=Zz9sjMGUM9k

Toll!

Grandioser Klassiker von Safka in ihren erfolgreichsten Zeiten
**
<Trommelfellsprengstoff>
*****
Sehr guter Gospel.
****
Aardige plaat van Melanie en consorten.
******
Grandios und kommt mit der vorangehenden Nummer (Candles in the rain - eine art gesprochenes Intro) ein kleinwenig monumental rüber
*****
...weniger als 5 Sterne wären eine Sünde...
******
Ein Flower-Power-Gospel - wunderbarer Klassiker, immer wieder ger gehört.
*****
one of Melanie's Best. Toll!!!<br>
******
Prachtig nummer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
******
mein absoluter favorit von melanie! klar, hier mit der unterstützung von den edwin hawkins singers, welche ich natürlich auch gut finde.
******
herausragende und voller Leidenschaft gesungene Flower Power-Gospelnummer aus 1969/70 - mutet wie eine feierliche Zeremonie an - 5.5 (aufgerundet auf 6*)...
******
Inderdaad een hele mooie plaat staat ook al 10 jaar in de Radio2 Top 2000. Kwam binnen in 1999 op 879 en kwam niet hoger dan 781 in 2002 en zakte af tot 1350 in 2007 maar in 2008 een opleving naar in de 1040 en viel in 2009 hard terug naar 1587 misschien is dit de defenitiefe lay down. ( zal jammer zijn )
******
Großartig !
*****
-sehr gut-<br>
******
Zum ersten Mal seit 1970 trat Melanie auf dem Isle of Wight Festival 2010 auf. Noch immer sorgt die Woodstock-Ikone mit Stimme und Gitarre für Gänsehaut.
*****
Ja, das ist feiner Flower-Power. Auch ich finde, dass der Gegensatz zwischen Melanies Stimme und dem Chor großartig wirkt und sie sozusagen herausfordert, ihr Bestes zu geben um nicht "unter" zu gehen. Gelungen.
*****
die Edwin Hawkins Singers neutralisieren Melanies aufdringliche Stimme zu einem gewissen Teil und schaffen so ein gewisses Gospel-Feeling, so dass ich die 4.5 Punkte ganz knapp aufrunden kann...<br>
******
Heel mooi.
*****
wunderschön
*****
... sehr gut ...

Excelente.
*****
...sehr gut...
*****
Ich lernte diesen coolen Song erst kürzlich in der gelungenen Interpretation eines freundlichen Winterthurer Chors kennen. Auch das Original gefällt mir prima, die 5 ist hochverdient.
*****
Ein sehr schönes Stück.
*****
...sehr gut gemacht...
*****
5+. Intensiv!

Wunderbar, bis heute eine der schönsten Blumenkinder-<br>Hymnen überhaupt, die natürlich hauptsächlich von ihrem<br>überaus kräftvollen Refrain lebt!<br><br>5 +
**
Peaked at #2 in Australia, 1970.
*****
sehr schönes lied... 5+
****
She has a pretty awful voice but I like this track. It's nice.
***
Inderdaad een gospelklassieker uit 1970, die echter destijds in de officiële Vlaamse charts slechts drie weken genoteerd stond en de 15de plaats als hoogste notering bereikte. Ben er zelf nooit heel enthousias over geweest.<br>3+
****
4 stars
******
Great
***
Je n'aime pas beaucoup.
******
Einer ihrer stärksten Songs!
*****
... knappe 5 der kraftvollen Stimme wegen ...
****
Der Song ist ja sonst nicht schlecht, ihre Stimme ist aber Gift für meine Ohren.
***
niet geweldig
******
Ik vind dit nog steeds een heerlijke single
****
noch in Ordnung
*****
Tolle Synergie zwischen der damals irrsinnig aufstrebenden Woodstock-Heldin Melanie und dem Edwin-Hawkins-Gospelchor, der 1969 durch "Oh Happy Day" weltbekannt geworden war. Das Stück ist inspiriert durch den verregneten Auftritt von Melanie bei eben jenem Woodstock-Festival, bei dem die Künstlerin in der Dunkelheit in ein Meer von Kerzen blickte.

Ich hasse Chöre. Dieses superhohe Gejaule kann man in der Tat mit Trommelfellsprengstoff vergleichen. Sonst eigentlich eine nette Nummer, aber bei den genannten Passagen fallen mir die Ohren ab. 2,5*
*****
Die Dame hatte wirklich paar geile Songs, die Stimme gefällt mir sehr gut! Mag den Sound, klingt so schön nach der Flower Power Zeit!<br><br>War im Juli 1970 für 2 Wochen eine #1 in Kanada!
*****
Toller und kraftvoller Song aus 1970.
*****
A very fine Song
****
<br>Ruby Tuesday gefällt mir besser.
******
Oh happy Song. <br>Da waren die Edwin Hawkins Singers ja noch einmal an einem Klassiker beteiligt, das war mir gar nicht bewusst.
***
Gefällt mir weniger.<br><br>CDN: #1 (2 weeks), 1970<br>USA: #6, 1970
***
weniger
****
Spannende Zusammenarbeit, gutes musikalisches Resultat.
