Written by composer Jule Styne and lyricist Sammy Cahn, “Let It Snow!” – also known as “Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!” – was penned during a heat wave in July of 1945 in Hollywood, CA as the musicians wished for cooler conditions.

One of the best-selling tunes of all times, “Let It Snow!” was first recorded by Vaughn Monroe with the Norton Sisters for RCA Victor in 1945, topping the Billboard music chart for five weeks in early 1946.

Often regarded as a Christmas song despite lacking any holiday references, “Let It Snow!” has been covered by countless artists including Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Bing Crosby and Joe Williams.
