Advent calendar: December 12—Frank Sinatra, “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”
Frank Sinatra, “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” (1947)
from Christmas Dreaming
Columbia CL 1032
One from Frank on his birthday. One of the more mature and timeless of his 1940s recordings, so many of which sound so remote and foreign to modern ears (which Frank helped create starting in about 1953). The song was relatively new (1944) when he recorded it, meaning he helped make it a standard.
