Here is a “cover” of “The Weight”, a very famous song by The BAND – one of my all-time favorites. BUT I changed the lyrics! I know, sacrilege, right? Well, most people have no idea WHAT the heck the song was about anyway and when I learned, I thought “such a great tune deserves deeper meaning”. So I took the wonderful chorus that everybody likes to sing in harmony and changed it from “Fanny” to “Annie”, and made this song about HELPING WOMEN. The three “Annies” I sing of here represent many women I have known, and all of them deserving of support. I’m sure that where you live, there are “Annies” like these who could use some help. So why not “Take a Load Off Annie”?
I hope you’ll forgive me for using such an Iconic song, by and Iconic band, to make a point. But it’s an Iconic Point!
