A Mel Torme Christmas

For the second year in a row, Mel Torme's Christmas album has been our music of choice for the holiday season. Nobody sings Yuletide classics quite like Mel. Not Bing Crosby, not Andy Williams and certainly not Wham.

Here is Mr. Torme singing a duet with an obviously inebriated Judy Garland. Her mangling of the lyrics is priceless. Torme remains jolly as he watches the song he wrote butchered by a drunken legend.

They just don't make Christmas specials like this anymore.

Did she really say "to see if rainbows really know how to fly"?

Maybe drunk people do see flying rainbows?
