Advent song for December 14

I knew this was the song I wanted for today, but I didn’t know which version I wanted, so this morning I engaged in a bit of research.  Things I didn’t know before include that this song is from a film, that it was written in 1949 and that it won the best song Oscar the following year.  There’s a very charming version from 1951 featuring Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Jordan, and there will always be a place in my heart for the Miss Piggy/Rudolf Nuryev cover, but because it’s the original and best, here are Ricardo Montalban and Esther Williams in Neptune’s Daughter (I’d never heard of it either) with Baby It’s Cold Outside.
