This Snowbird flew to us from Canada, where its composer Gene MacLellan, and its original hit singer, Anne Murray, come from. To achieve such unique songs as this one, or Put Your Hand in the Hand, MacLellan says 'I start out with the sound in my head. Developing the melody is the easy part, in my case'. That accounts for the strong and unforgettable melody of MacLellan's music, most notably in Snowbird.
