Song of the Day #2080

Song of the Day: The Secret of Christmas, words and music by Sammy Cahn and Jimmy van Heusen, was written for Bing Crosby, who performed this song in the 1959 film, “Say One for Me“. Check out the film’s rendition, by Bing, with assistance from Debbie Reynolds and Robert Wagner [YouTube link]. The song has been covered by many artists, including Ella Fitzgerald, Julie Andrews, and violinist Joshua Bell, whose recording with singer Michael Feinstein is lovely. Merry Christmas to those who celebrate, especially among my friends and family. The spirit of the holiday, however, is universal, with its message of “Peace on earth, Goodwill toward all.”
