"Little Bear" is the opening track of Through the Windowpane, the 2006 debut album from indie band Guillemots. It was written by Guillemots frontman Fyfe Dangerfield,[1] and in 2010 was listed in the reference book 1001 Songs You Must Hear Before You Die.[2]

In a radio programme celebrating the 40th anniversary of BBC station Radio 1, Paul McCartney named "Little Bear" as one of his "all-time favourite songs".[3][4] McCartney called the track "a very brave way to open an album", and praised its "beautiful orchestration".[2]
