“Songbird” is the title track and first single released from Barbra Streisand’s 1978 album. It was written by Dave Wolfert and Stephen Nelson and produced by Gary Klein. On the Billboard Hot 100 chart, the song peaked at number 25. It spent two weeks atop the Billboard easy listening chart in July and August 1978, her fifth song to accomplish this feat. One theory as to why “Songbird” was less successful on the U.S. pop chart is that Streisand recorded the theme to the 1978 film Eyes of Laura Mars, which was released as a single a few weeks after “Songbird” came out. The “Love Theme from Eyes of Laura Mars (Prisoner)“ reached number 21 on the Billboard Hot 100 and may have created competition with herself for pop radio airplay and single sales. Read on...
