One of Annie’s favorite things to do when we visit Mike’s parents is to sit at their piano and make noise. On this last trip, she took things up a notch and made up her own song.

Annie clearly comes from the tradition of confessional songwriters like Joni Mitchell, because the song touches on her recent life experiences including watching bunnies run around her grandparents’ backyard, touching the steering wheel of a new toy, and, most tellingly, her fear of playground slides. Sing on, Annie.
