Annie's Song

Annie's Song by John Denver was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, October 12, 1974 spending 1 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. Denver wrote this for his then-wife Ann Martell after their first separation and near break up of their marriage in 1974. He said that it was one of the fastest songs he ever wrote, composing it in about 10 minutes while he was riding on a ski lift in Aspen, Colorado. Denver was reflecting on all the joy he found in his marriage and his relief that they were back together. This was featured in a scene in the 1997 movie My Best Friend's Wedding when Julianne and Michael are having a serious conversation and three young boys inhale the helium (laughing gas) from a helium tank meant for the balloons.
