Melanie Anne Safka-Schekeryk (født 3. februar 1947) er en amerikansk singer-songwriter kendt som Melanie og undertiden som Melanie Safka. Hun er bedst kendt for det globale hit "Brand New Key" i 1971/72, hendes coverversion af "Ruby Tuesday", hendes komposition "What Have They Done to My Song Ma" og hendes internationale internationale gennembrudshit fra 1970 "Lay Down (Candles in regnen) ", inspireret af hendes oplevelse af at optræde på Woodstockfestivalen i 1969.[1][2]
