Hugh Martin, "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" Songwriter, Dies at 96

"Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" songwriter Hugh Martin has died. He was 96.

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. Martin and songwriting partner Ralph Blane received an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Song for writing the film's "The Trolley Song." The duo also were nominated in 1947 for "Pass the Peace Pipe" from Good News.


One of my favorite Christmas songs, RIP Hugh!

Deuteronomy 18:10-12 (KJV)

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. (KJV)

Thanks for posting this, DK. I'm reading a book now about someone who worked a lot with Hugh Martin in the past. Mr. Martin was interviewed for the book and is mentioned several times. I JUST Googled him last week to see if he was still alive! RIP.

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.
