Christmas songs

According to the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP), no Christmas song was more played last year than “Winter Wonderland,” the popular tune first penned by Felix Bernard and Richard B. Smith in 1934.

Mel Torme’s “The Christmas Song” was the second most played holiday tune of a year ago, while Ralph Blane and Hugh Martin’s timeless classic “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” rounded out the top three.
