Michael Buble's "I'll Be Home for Christmas" top holiday tune

I love Christmas music.

One of my favorite versions of I'll Be Home For Christmas is by Canadian Michael Buble.

The song was written by American songwriters Buck Ram, Kim Gannon and Walter Kent. Bing Crosby made it a hit in 1943, when it shot to the top of the charts. It went on to be recorded by hundreds of performers including Perry Como, Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin. Canadian Anne Murray did a cover of it on her 2001 album, What a Wonderful Christmas.

I'll Be Home for Christmas is from Buble's Let It Snow album.

The popular Christmas song was #14 of the 25 Most Popular Holidays Song of 2008 as determined by radio airplay and compiled by the American Society of Composers and Publishers (ASCAP).
