Lance Rubin: "It Snowed" (Meaghan Smith). This song is about snow and not specific to any holiday, but I first discovered it on an iTunes Holiday Sampler a few years ago, so that means it counts. I love the strong presence of horns in this song and its overall vibe of easygoing sophistication. It evokes the childlike feeling of joy and triumph inspired by a snow day, but in a very adult way. Also, it's one of the few holiday songs you can continue to listen to in January without feeling depressed that you're living in the past.
Set in the magical world of La Belle Epoque Paris, where fashion, glamour, and passion prevail, Lerner and Loewe's celebrated musical is a romantic comedy about one young woman's journey to find her true self... and her true love.
