Marie Cherie

Album: Don't Stop (2008)

Songfacts®:

  • Annie described this character study to the Guardian newspaper July 4, 2008 as "a story I just made up about one woman I saw walking down the street. She must have been 60 years old, but she was dressing like she was 15. And I just got this idea, quite a dark one, about a girl who gets raped by her father..." Annie laughed unexpectedly before adding: "Yeah, really dark. But I don't think I could ever make a song, which was so totally hysterically happy. There always has to be some sort of crash going on. I like that grey area, where you don't totally get what it is - is it happy or is it sad? In a lot of situations, that's how life is, at least for me."
