Crooner extraordinaire Dino Paul Crocetti, better known as Dean Martin, recorded many Christmas songs and performed them throughout his career, most notably during the nine seasons of his self-titled television show & then his holiday specials.
I know & love so many of his seasonal tracks but today’s is in my top five. It is a relatively short song, but all 115 seconds are sheer and utter bliss, especially to girls like me who grew up watching their grandmother swoon to every move and sound this man made.
“The fire is slowly dying
And my dear we’re still goodbying
But as long as you’d love me so
Let it snow! Let it snow and snow!“.
Dean Martin circa 1964. (Image found online. Original source unknown.)
Dean Martin: “Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!” (1959, written by Sammy Cahn and composer Jule Styne).
