Comments about the soundtrack for Home Alone (John Williams)
What about the contributions from Torme, Drifters, etc?

What about the contributions from Torme, Drifters, etc?   Friday, December 16, 2005 (11:25 a.m.) 

As far as holiday classics are concerned, John Williams not only capsulates the spirit of christmas in his versions of "carol of the bells" (of which I cannont find a better version), "O Holy Night" and his own "Star of Bethlehem," but the additions of "White Christmas," the 1957 Drifters hit and Mel Torme's rendition of "Have Yourself a Merry Little Chrismas" rounds out the soundtrack quite nicely.

On a side note, does anyone know when Torme recorded this selection? I think a knowledge of the history of a piece of music adds to its appreciation.
