The song was composed by Howard Blake and is performed by a boy soprano during a scene in which the boy and the snowman fly through the air. The lyrics describe the sense of freedom and wonder that comes with flying, and the melody is both soaring and wistful. "Walking in the Air" has become a beloved Christmas classic and is often played during the holiday season.
