|Single by Michelle Shocked|
|from the album Short Sharp Shocked|
"Anchorage" is a song by Michelle Shocked released as a single from her 1988 album Short Sharp Shocked. The song is about the narrator taking time out to write to an old friend, who has moved from Texas to Anchorage, and her friend's reply. She tells Chel that her husband "says send a picture, hello and to keep on rocking"
Much of the song was taken directly from a letter from JoAnn Kelli Bingham, a Comanche Indian & recently married friend who had recently moved to geographically remote Alaska. Her husband is Leroy Bingham, a Blackfeet Indian who worked for Cook Inlet Tribal Council.
