Kim about Hey mister Snowman
This was the last song written for the album. I woke up very early one morning with the whole song in my head, and sneaked downstairs to write it all down on my computer before I forgot anything. I have always been a big fan of the Andrews Sisters, loving their tight and clever harmony work, often injected with a large helping of humor. I sang the song over breakfast to my children Harry and Rose that same morning…they both exchanged worried glances. Neil Jones has again created a sublime guitar solo, and Scarlett Wilde cleverly takes on some very challenging harmony work. Sounds easy… it isn’t! (1)
