  • Written by Howard Blake for the 1982 animated film The Snowman which was written and illustrated by Raymond Briggs

  • St. Paul's Cathedral choirboy Peter Auty performed the song for the film but an altered version was released in 1985 with Aled Jones. Auty was not credited on the original film leading to a common misbelief that Jones performed in the original film

  • The song has been covered by over forty artists
