"Songbird" is a song by Kenny G, played on a soprano saxophone[4], and the third single from his 1986 album Duotones. It reached #3 on the U.S. Adult Contemporary charts, #4 on the U.S. Hot 100 charts and #23 on the U.S. Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs.[5]

When released in 1987, the song became the first instrumental to reach the top 5 of the Billboard Hot 100 since the "Miami Vice Theme" by Jan Hammer (a No. 1 hit) in 1985.

This song can be heard in one scene from Pixar's 2006 animated feature, Cars.

It can also be heard in one scene in comedy 2002 film, The Master of Disguise.
