Songs for Polarbears is the debut album by the indie rock group Snow Patrol, released on August 31, 1998. All lyrics were written by Gary Lightbody, and all music composed by Gary Lightbody, Mark McClelland and Jonny Quinn. The album title is a reference to the band's original name, "Polar Bear", which was changed early on to "Snow Patrol", due to an American band also named Polar Bear, who took exception. Part of a recorded voice message about this can be heard at the beginning of the song, "Little Hide". .
