Martin is best known for composing the score to the 1944 musical Meet Me In St. Louis, in whichJudy Garland famously performs the song that became a seasonal classic.

One of my favorite Christmas songs, RIP Hugh!

10 There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, 11 or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. 12 For all who do these things are an abomination to the Lord.

Oh noooooooooooo. My mom and brother will be in mourning. What a talented man.
"Meet Me In St. Louis" is on my list of my top five fave films. "The Trolley Song". Classic production number. "Pass That Peace Pipe" again classic. I'm going to have to dig out the old DHS's and watch those films.
RIP Hugh Martin.
