Retro of the day: John Denver

Sunshine on My Shoulders” (sometimes titled simply “Sunshine“) is a song recorded and co-written by American singer-songwriter John Denver. It was originally released as an album track on 1971’s Poems, Prayers & Promises and later, as a single in 1973. It went to number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the U.S. in early 1974.

 

“Annie’s Song” (also known as “Annie’s Song (You Fill Up My Senses)”) is a folk rock country song recorded and written by singer-songwriter John Denver. The song was released as a single from Denver’s album, Back Home Again. It was his second number-one song in the United States, occupying that spot for two weeks in July 1974. “Annie’s Song” also went to number one on the Easy Listening chart.[1] Billboard ranked it as the No. 25 song for 1974.[2]
It went to number one in the United Kingdom, where it was Denver’s only major hit single (many of Denver’s American hits were more familiar in the UK through cover versions by other artists). Four years later, an instrumental version also became flutist James Galway’s only major British hit.
