"Suddenly Mary" is a song by the American alternative rock band The Posies, released as the second single released from its major label debut album Dear 23 in 1991.

History[edit]

Also available as a promo CD, exactly the same as the single listed above, only with the word "Promotional" printed on it in orange ink. (The photo here is of the US promo single.) The art direction was by bassist Rick (Arthur) Roberts; the inside gatefold photo is of the wedding cake from the front cover, burning.

There is another "Suddenly Mary" promo cd, in a thin cardboard envelope but no plastic case. The front cover artwork is the same as the inside cover artwork on the cd single (i.e., the burning wedding cake with scissors in it); the back cover looks just like the cd single except for the song listing. The CD itself looks just like the single except it is printed in purple, not blue. It contains only the song "Suddenly Mary," not the B-sides.
