I haven't done this song in many years and I've always loved it, such a wonderful melody and beautiful, passionate lyrics :) "Annie's Song" is a song recorded and written by singer-songwriter John Denver. It was his second number-one song in the United States, occupying that spot for two weeks in July 1974. "Annie's Song" also went to number one on the Easy Listening chart. It went to number one in the United Kingdom, where it was Denver's only major hit single (many of Denver's American hits were more familiar in the UK through cover versions by other artists). Denver paid loving tribute to his wife Annie Denver (née Martell) by dedicating this song to her. Annie Denver recalls the beginnings: 'It was written after John and I had gone through a pretty intense time together and things were pretty good for us. He left to go skiing and he got on the Ajax chair on Aspen mountain and the song just came to him. He skied down and came home and wrote it down... Initially it was a love song and it was given to me through him, and yet for him it became a bit like a prayer.' The background pic is of Lake Louise in the Rocky Mountains of Alberta, Canada....I thought the beauty and serenity of the scene would be perfect for this song :) http://www.meridiantravel.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/APT-Lake-Louise-Canada.jpg
