“Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”: Top Five Christmas Song #3

Have yourself a merry little christmasToday’s song: “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”, 1957, by Hugh Martin. (The original was written in 1944, but Martin added the line that inspired the picture above in 1957.  Thanks, Wikipedia.)

This is such a great bittersweet song.  When I hear the line “Hang a shining star upon the highest bough” it makes the think of a dad holding his son up high in their sparse apartment living room to put the star on the tree.

And, honestly, it was a good reason to try a piece from a different vantage point.

Two more songs to go.  Check back soon.
