Music Inspiration for week of Dec 23: Silver Bells

This has always been my most favorite Christmas carol.  It’s so happy and modern.  I did not know until this year though that it was actually from a movie and its original title was Tinkle Bells.  One of the songwriters wives put the kibosh on that though when he brought the song home and she informed him of the other connotation of the word “tinkle”.

From:  The Lemon Drop Kid (1951)
Sung By:  Bob Hope and Marilyn MaxwelL
Songwriters – Jay Livingston, Ray Evans
