Christmas Chart #2 – The Christmas Song

For Christmas eve we have argueably one of the best festive tunes ever, The Christmas Song.  The BMI state that this 1944 hit, written by vocalist Mel Tormé and Bob Wells, is the most performed Christmas pop song.  The version you’ll hear below was recorded by Nat King Cole in 1961, he’d previously recorded versions of the song in 1946 (twice) and 1953.

So as you race around with the last minute Christmas chores, enjoy the beautiful sound of Nat King Cole performing The Christmas Song.
