The song of the day for Saturday, December 13, 2014 is “Winter Wonderland.”
About This Song
“Winter Wonderland” was written in 1934 by Felix Barnard (music) and Richard Smith (lyrics). The lyricist Richard Smith wrote this song after a snowfall covered his home town of Honesdale, Pennsylvania. It is, of course, a beloved holiday song, even though the lyrics do not explicitly mention Christmas.
About This Version
Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga performed “Winter Wonderland” at the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Lighting, broadcast live by NBC Television on December 3, 2014.
I’m actually a day early, as officially The Twelve Days of a Tony Bennett Christmas doesn’t begin until tomorrow. But I do have the Christmas spirit today and as it’s Video Saturday and we have a video of the performance, I though well, why not.
“Winter Wonderland” is available from iTunes.
