  • CHRISTMAS/HOLIDAY - It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

    This song sheet that I've put together for our BUG Jam is shorter than the video recordings.

    Remember that you can literally change any of the 7th chords to just the roots, i.e., [F7] can just be [F], [Dm7] can just be [Dm], etc. The 7th sound is lovely though and the [Em7] tucks in well right after the [G].

    "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year" is a popular Christmas song written in triple time in 1963 by Edward Pola and George Wyle. It was recorded and released that year by pop singer Andy Williams for his first Christmas album, The Andy Williams Christmas Album. The song is a celebration and description of activities associated with the Christmas season, focusing primarily on get-togethers between friends and families. Among the activities included in the song is the telling of "scary ghost stories," a Victorian Christmas tradition that has mostly fallen into disuse, but survives in the seasonal popularity of numerous adaptations of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol. The song was selected as the theme song for Christmas Seals in both 2009 and 2012, and has been used in LOTS of commercials.
