    "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."

    One of my favorite Christmas songs, RIP Hugh!

    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.
