1969 Song of the Day is “Snowbird” by Anne Murray. Snowbird was written by Gene MacLellan who was a Canadian singer-songwriter. Snowbird has been covered by a number of greater artists than Anne Murray- Elvis and Bing being two- but Anne Murray’s version is the best known. Snowbird was an album track on Anne’s This Way Is My Way album that came out in 1969- it wasn’t until mid 1970 that it was released as a single. Snowbird would be Murray’s first hit in the US- going to #8 and became her signature song. Anne Murray is one of those performers who back in the day was a popular middle of the road pop artist who you never hear mentioned. Note- I read somewhere years ago I can’t recall where- that Snowbird was The King’s favorite song.
