Posted on Monday, November 23, 2009 @ 13:43:04 UTC
Topping ASCAP's holiday songs list of the decade is one of the oldest
songs on the list: "Winter Wonderland." It was written in 1934 by
Felix Bernard and Richard B. Smith, and was an instant hit for
legendary bandleader Guy Lombardo And His Royal Canadians who took it
to the #2 spot on the Billboard charts the same year. Recordings by
the Andrews Sisters and Perry Como, in 1946, established the song as
a Yuletide favorite. Versions by the Eurythmics, Jewel and Air
Supply are frequently heard on radio today.
