Classic British Animation: The Snowman
The holidays may be over, but the holiday spirit needn't fade so quickly. Here's a wonderful British animated film called The Snowman that first aired in 1982. Based on the children's book by Raymond Briggs, the movie is introduced by David Bowie. It features the beautiful song Walking in the Air, which I included on my 2009 holiday mix, I Just Can't Wait for Christmas, in a version by the San Francisco band The Hundred Days. The song starts around 15:45, and the accompanying animation is stunning. Enjoy another taste of holiday magic, whatever time of year it is.
