“Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas,” written by Hugh Martin and Ralph Blaine for the 1944 movie Meet Me in St. Louis, performed by 21-year-old Judy Garland (who married the film’s director Vincente Minnelli in 1945). The original lyrics were considered depressing by the MGM producers, and Hugh Martin re-wrote them, crafting this poignant perennial.
