First of all: I don't know any person named Annie. I know a person whose name sounds similar (and who also inspired that song to a great extent), but I'm not actually singing about a real significant someone. If I did, the lyrics would probably be less innocent, because relationships never play out that innocently sweet, do they? That being said, there were two months in my life when I actually felt what I sing about: A range of emotions based on simplified Hollywood clichés, a mixture of the wonderous, youthful adventures of early Spielberg movies and the tender, awkward and sweet romantic stories found in some lesser known chick-flicks or coming-of-age films. On top of that, add all the good, blurry, idealized memories of childhood summer holidays and you're looking at the complete emotional backrop of that song...and when it came to choosing a name I could project that colorful blend of emotions on to - I chose Annie. Why? No idea. :)
