On the eighth day of the Twelve Days of a Tony Bennett Christmas, Monday, December 21, 2015, the song of the day is “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas.”
About This Song
“Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” was written by Hugh Martin and Ralph Blane for the 1944 movie Meet Me In St. Louis, where it was introduced by Judy Garland.
In a Twitter conversation in November 2012, Tony Bennett said that “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” is his favorite Christmas song. I’d have to say it’s mine as well.
About This Version

“Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas,” as well as A Swingin’ Christmas, is available from iTunes.
