Edward Abraham Snyder (February 22, 1919 – March 10, 2011) was an American composer and songwriter.

Snyder was born in New York City on February 22, 1919. He studied piano at the Juilliard School before taking a job as a songwriter at the Brill Building. A piano student, Eddie Snyder first worked as a classic “piano man” in bars, clubs, and hotels. Though he never studied voice, he says he was able to “get away” with singing enough to keep the gigs coming. After Juilliard, Snyder left New York with his family for Florida, where he took his repertoire into the Miami scene. In 1945 he met the future Mrs. Snyder—a singer also on the nightlife circuit. The couple wed in 1947. In the early 1950s, Snyder was able to find work in the music publishing business, and began his long, prolific career. He has written hits for Al Martino, Johnny Mathis, Perry Como, and Brenda Lee. His hit “Spanish Eyes” was re-recorded by Willie Nelson. Other highlights include “100 Pounds of Clay,” “Remember When,” “Talk to Me,” “10 Lonely Guys,” and “Bitter With the Sweet.”
