Annie's Song (3:19)

Cover of The Harbor Lights Concert

From The Harbor Lights Concert and 196 other releases

“Annie’s Song” was written as an ode to Denver’s then-wife, Annie Denver (née Martell). Denver “wrote this song in about ten-and-a-half minutes one day on a ski lift” to the top of Bell Mountain in Aspen, Colorado, as the physical exhilaration of having “just skied down a very difficult run” and the feeling of total immersion in the beauty of the colors and sounds that filled all senses inspired him to think about his wife.
