Marie/ Carrie Anne

Written about British actress and former girlfriend of Mick Jagger, Marianne Faithfull, by The Hollies’ Allan Clarke, Graham Nash and Tony Hicks, “Carrie Anne” calls out the individual on her “game” telling her that others are talking about her and her reputation. Performing their hit on the BBC Four in 1969, The Hollies shine communally and individually during this performance.

Interesting Fact: The song was recorded in only two takes on 1 May 1967 at EMI’s Abbey Road Studios.

Recorded in only two takes in May of 1967 and released a single, “Carrie Anne” reached #3 in the UK charts and #9 in US on the Pop Charts in the same year. With hits like “Long Cool Woman (In A Black Dress)” and “Bus Stop,” The Hollies were a significant part of 60’s music that started from the iconic duo of Allan Clarke and Crosby, Stills and Nash’s Graham Nash.

+ Carrie Anne Lyrics +

Hey, Carrie Anne
Hey, Carrie Anne
When we were at school, our games were simple
I played a janitor, you played a monitor
Then you played with older boys and prefects
What’s the attraction in what they’re doing

Hey, Carrie Anne, what’s your game now
Can anybody play
Hey, Carrie Anne, what’s your game now
Can anybody play

You were always something special to me
quite independent, never caring
You lost your charm as you were aging
Where is your magic disappearing

Hey, Carrie Anne, what’s your game now
Can anybody play
Hey, Carrie Anne, what’s your game now
Can anybody play

You’re so, so like a woman to me
(So like a woman to me)
So, so like a woman to me
(Like a woman to me)

Hey, Carrie Anne, what’s your game now
Can anybody play
Hey, Carrie Anne, what’s your game now
Can anybody play

People live and learn but you’re still learning
You use my mind and I’ll be your teacher
When the lesson’s over, you’ll be with me
Then I’ll hear the other people saying

Hey, Carrie Anne, what’s your game now
Can anybody play
Hey, Carrie Anne, what’s your game now
Can anybody play

Carrie Anne, Carrie Anne, Carrie Anne
