Who Anne Murray Is To Me

Who Anne Murray Is To Me

I'm still south of 40, so I don't remember Anne Murray's heyday with "Snowbird" and her other early and mid-70s hits.  I missed the Anne Murray era, but I have very strong memories of her.

In 1977, Anne Murray released There's a Hippo in My Tub, and my parents bought it for me.  I heard it all the time as a child.


My favourite tracks from the album were "Animal Crackers" and "Teddy Bears' Picnic".  I friggin' loved "Teddy Bears' Picnic".

I'm not sure how the younger generation remembers Anne Murray, except from history books that remember her fondly as one of Canada's first big female solo singer success stories.

I remember her for the hippo in her bathtub.
