Have Yourself 10 Versions of “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”

In my time zone, there are 5 ½ days left before Christmas. To get into the spirit, I sit here at my desk with a fresh cup of brewed coffee and a handful of Christmas foiled Hershey’s Kisses while listening to my favorite holiday songs.

A track that never fails to touch my heartstrings is “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.” It’s been remixed and remade so many times since it first came out in 1944 that The Awl has tallied their 50 favorite versions, not counting the numerous underground YouTube acts that continuously join the bandwagon.

As for me, I’ve narrowed down my picks to 10. Tell me yours. Happy holidays!
