Christmas music:Let It Snow! (Dean Martin)

We are having a major storm here in Northern California so it seems fitting that today’s selection is Let It Snow! (known fully as Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!) Like many favorite Christmas tunes, this one was written where snow is rare namely Hollywood, California. Apparently there was a heat wave and Sammy Cahn (lyrics) and Jule Styne (composer) thought this was the perfect song for it in 1945. The song is classified as Christmas song but never mentions the holiday. Numerous recording artists have recorded the song over the years that have included Ray Charles, Frank Sinatra, Lena Horne,Rod Stewart,Jewel and Lady Antebellum to name a few. Fans of the Die Hard series will recall the tune as it closed out both movies. While many versions abound, I like Dean Martin rendition. Enjoy.
