the morning benders - "Oh Annie"

It’s not the first time the morning benders have sang for an Ann, though this is not the same one they damned five years ago. “Oh Annie” is a newly unveiled b-side to the band’s Big Echo sessions, with lead morning bender @ChrisChu tweeting “My only regret with Big Echo is that this wasn’t on it. I wrote it after watching Annie hall for the 100th time.” Which is the proper number of times to have watched Annie Hall, and which also gives some sweet rendering to the lovely, loping waltz-time lament’s hook: “Annie oh Annie, how can you go? / I taught you everything you know, you know.” (Chances are she left for someone who handles their drugs a little better, though that’s just statistically speaking.) Hear, here:

  1. newly-unveiled? this has been on itunes since big echo was released in march of 2010

  2. There’s a nice version here, too (a bit more sparse in this case):

  3. Yeah I got it WITH Big Echo on iTunes.
    Is this an iTunes AU only thing? Cause I love this song, if you guys in America are missing it, that sucks.
