Anne Murray Biography

20 June 1946, Springhill, Nova Scotia, Canada. Sometimes known as "The Singing Sweetheart Of Canada", Anne Murray graduated from the University of New Brunswick with a degree in physical education, and then spent a year as a teacher. After singing simply for pleasure for a time, in 1964 she was persuaded to audition for Sing Along Jubilee, a regional television show, but was selected instead for the same network's Let's Go, hosted by Bill Langstroth (her future husband). Income from a residency on the programmed and solo concerts was sufficient for Anne Murray to begin entertaining professionally in a vaguely folk/country rock style, though she could also acquit herself admirably with both R&B and mainstream pop material. Like Linda Ronstadt - seen by some as her US opposite number - she was mainly an interpreter of songs written by others. Issued by Arc Records, What About Me (1968) created sufficient impact to interest Capitol Records, who signed her to a long-term contract. Two years later, her version of Gene MacLellans remarkable "Snowbird', taken from the album This Was My Way, soared into Billboard's Top 10.

Despite regular appearances on Glen Campbell's Goodtime Hour television series, subsequent releases - including the title track to Talk It Over In The Morning - sold only moderately until 1973 when she scored another smash hit with "Danny's Song", composed by Kenny Loggins (with whom she duetted 11 years later on "Nobody Loves Me Like You Do', a country chart-topper). She was rated Billboard's second most successful female artist in 1976, but family commitments necessitated a brief period of domesticity before "You Needed Me" won her a Grammy Award for best female pop vocal performance in 1978. While revivals of Bobby Darin's "Things" and the Monkees' "Daydream Believer" were aimed directly at the pop market, it was with the country audience that she proved most popular. "He Thinks I Still Care" (originally a b-side) became her first country number 1. However, along with "Just Another Woman In Love", "Could I Have This Dance" (from the movie Urban Cowboy), the bold "A Little Good News" (1983) and other country hits, she had also recorded a collection of children's ditties (Hippo In My Tub), commensurate with her executive involvement with Canada's Save The Children Fund. In 1989 Springhill's Anne Murray Center was opened in recognition of her tireless work for this charity. Three years later she played Las Vegas, with a show that amply demonstrated her excellent delivery and superior choice of songs. These strengths were consistently reflected in her recorded output during the 90s. In 1999, she released her first collection of hymns and inspirational songs.

Anne Murray Lyrics

Could I Have This Dance Lyrics by Anne Murray

Artist: Anne Murray (peak Billboard position # 33 in 1980)
Words and Music by Wayland Holyfield and Bob House
from the movie “Urban Cowboy” starring John Travolta and Debra Winger

I’ll always remember the song they were playin’
The first time we danced and I knew
As we swayed to the music and held to each other
I fell in love with you

Could I have this dance for the rest of my life
Would you be my partner every night
When we’re together it feels so right
Could I have this dance for the rest of my life

I’ll always remember that magic moment
When I held you close to me
As we moved together, I knew forever
You’re all I’ll ever need.
