This way is her way...




Anne Murray is a Canadian singer who can boast of having sold no less than 55 million records worldwide to date. But also to have been the first Canadian singer to finish No.1 on the American Charts and to have won no less than 4 Grammys and 3 American Music Awards.


Her artistic career really started in 1965 when she appeared on the New Brunswick University musical project "The Groove", where she performed 2 songs.


We find her 3 years later in 1968 this time solo with a first album "What about me", album which will unfortunately go somewhat unnoticed. This is not the case with the following one, "This way is my way", which came out a year later in 1969 and which was to offer the young singer her first mega hit, just that, with the title "Snowbird" !


A career launched in a sensational way and which will see her string together successful albums at an incredible speed, to say the least, with 10 albums between 1970 and 1977. And very large-caliber singles such as "Cotton Jenny" and "Danny's song" in 1972, "What about me" and "A love song" in 1973, "Uproar" in 1975 and "The call" in 1976.


And it is from the year 1978 that she will pass the last level of the supreme recognition thanks to the album "Let's keep it that way", album which gives her the biggest success of all her career on the single side with the enormous title “You needed me”.


The end of the 1970s saw her literally walk on water with the release of two huge albums "New kind of feeling" and "I'll always love you" in 1979. Album from which a new mega hit "Daydream believer" will be extracted.


But also at the very beginning of the 1980s with the album "Somebody's waiting", an album carried at arm's length by the single "Lucky me".


Successful albums will continue to follow one another throughout the decade with no less than 7 albums and a host of successful single, the most successful of which will be "Could I have this dance" in 1980, "Another sleepless night" in 1982, "A little good news" in 1983 and "Now and forever (You and me)" in 1986.


The 90s will see her retrograde somewhat in the Charts but without losing contact with the best. Five albums will be released during this decade, the most successful of which will be "Croonin" in 1993. Albums which will still struggle to produce a global class hit worthy of the name ...


She will continue the adventure during the 2000s, but the level of success achieved will no longer have anything to do with what she experienced during the 1980s ...


To discover or rediscover.

Clips :


1968 ... the very first steps. Who would imagine at this point the incredible career that awaits the young singer in the years to come. Sorry, in the decades to come ...



1969 ... the first classified title. This time, the singer's career is well and truly launched and it is set to last like that for almost 30 years, just that ...



1970 ... in just 2 years she will establish herself as one of the biggest musical phenomena of the moment. Starting with this title which will bring her its first global mega hit and literally explode its notoriety internationally. HU-GE !



1971 ... the mega hits will now follow one another at an impressive speed to say the least. And this for almost 4 decades, a real feat !



1971 ... of course, she will shine mainly in the field of Country but the level of fame achieved will be downright stratospheric. No worries about her therefore for the rest of the events ...



1971 ... a mega hit and three top hits just for this year 1971 and only after 3 years of career. A list of achievements already more than flattering !



1972 ... the weather for success is once again bright thanks to this revisited version of Gordon Lighfoot's title from the previous year. Whether in pure creation or luxury cover, everything definitely smiles on her !



1972 ... decidedly, this year 1972 will be that of luxury covers. This time, she covers a title of Kenny Loggins dating from the previous year also and the copy is once again largely up to par !



1973 ... the great adventure continues in this year 1973 without the young singer too much forcing her talent. As long as it works, there is no reason to change strategy ...



1973 ... decidedly, she likes to revisit the titles of Kenny Loggins. The proof once again with this title, a copy that will remain much better known than the original



1974 ... in the series of luxury covers, here she is tackling a Beatles title dating from 1965, a daring bet to say the least. A daring bet but a gamble won hands down !



1975 ... a mid-1970s which saw her doing a little bit of stagnation. Difficult, even for the most talented, to chain the mega hits and the top hits indefinitely. There are bound to be some slack in a career, however brilliant it may be ...



1976 ... even if she does a little on the spot, she still manages to give us pretty ballads of which she has the secret. We take, we take !



1976 ... in the same vein. Nothing exceptional in this year 1976 but some ballad of large caliber, which is more than enough to keep her in the leading pack ....



1978 ... after a year 1977 when not much interesting happened, surprising to say the least, here she is setting the record straight in this year 1978 thanks to this new top hit. The opposite would have been surprising...



1978 ... not only does she set the record straight, but she will quite simply land the mega jackpot with this enormous title, a title which offers her on a platter her direct ticket to posterity. MAS-TER-FUL !



1979 ... another luxury cover this time of a Carpenters title dating from 1977. And once again, the cover will surpass the original. What talent !



1979 ... an end of the 1970s on the hats of the wheel with a succession of very large-caliber titles which once again proves that she certainly does not intend to stop there. Good to hear, hi !



1979 ... a year 1979 which will undoubtedly remain as one of its best vintages. Everything smiles on her as if by magic and positions her in an ideal way at the door of an 80s decade which promises to be under the best auspices ...



1980 ... an 80s decade which starts off in the best possible way with this luxury cover of the Monkees' title dating from 1967. This time, the copy will not exceed the original in terms of success but will come close to it...



1980 ... as soon as she can return to her secret garden for big-caliber ballads, she is not shy. And given the success achieved by her title, she would have been wrong to embarrass herself !



1980 ... three top hits and a mega hit just for this year 1980. A remarkable year which allows the singer to stay ahead of the race with disconcerting ease to say the least !



1981 ... a year 1981 which starts again on more or less the same bases as the year 1980. The singer is already in her 3rd decade without the wear of time having in any way sent her back to oblivion ...
