HERE’S a good pub question: Who sang “Walking In The Air” in The Snowman? That’s right, Peter Auty. Who? Exactly. Young Aled rose to fame by covering a song that had been made famous by someone else.
I love this song because I love the film. It’s one of those things I wish had been around when I was very young. I bought it on DVD last Christmas for Ronnie and Reggie to watch on Christmas Eve, but they were bored to tears!
Much better than the stage show, mind you, even when there’s a fight on stage between the Snowman and his understudy… Long story and one I’ll keep for later.
