  • Margarete Schulz

    I adore Didn’t You Ever Love Somebody by Melanie, whose music I first discovered while looking through a box of tapes my parents hadn’t played in a while. It was one of the songs on Seventh Wave and I just fell in love with it and Melanie’s singing. It remains one of my very favourite songs to this day and I will always sing along when I hear it and get up and dance. I spent a long time looking for this album online as an LP/record and I was so happy when I finally found it! The songs are in a slightly different order to the cassette tape, but it sounds so good! My mother’s poor tape is a bit old and tired since I’ve played it so much and my little sister now loves Melanie Safka too. Ugh, I just love this song so much. It fills me with so much hope and a feeling of great happiness. I can’t even explain it, but it’s a beautiful, wonderful song that is perfect for warm sunny days and strolls in sunlit fields or just walking to the shops. :)
