Hugh Martin, August 11, 1914 – March 11, 2011

Hugh Martin has passed away aged 96. He was the composer of many great songs for the theatre and cinema. Here is a video of my absolute favourite, a song which I generally find so joyous and uplifting that, today, I’m being crushed by it:

Martin also composed Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, Pass the Peace Pipe and many more. He lives on in these songs.
