Music of the day – Silver Bells

Bob Hope & Marilyn Maxwell in “The Lemon Drop Kid” (1951)

Written by Jay Livingston and Ray Evans in 1950.

“Silver Bells” started out as “Tinkle Bells”. Songwriter Ray Evans said: “We never thought that tinkle had a double meaning until Jay went home and his first wife said, ‘Are you out of your mind? Do you know what the word tinkle is?'”
