This is a wonderful song for the holidays. Though it makes no mention of Christmas, it is definitely a favourite this time of year. Written by lyricist Carl Sigman and composer Peter DeRose in 1949 this upbeat tune celebrates winter and all her beauty. The poetic lyrics express the joy felt by the singer at this magical time of the year and the very visual descriptions really come alive as you listen to "Marshmallow World".
Though Mr. Bing Crosby was the first to have a hit with this song, I have chosen Seth MacFarlane's current fully orchestrated version to use on my play list this season. Yes it is the same Seth MacFarlane who in addition to being a talented actor, filmmaker, comedian and singer was the creator of the hit animated television series "Family Guy". When you listen to Seth sing "Marshmallow World" it sounds as though he is having the time of his life and I believe my participants can feel that. There are many other versions out there to choose from but this one is my choice for this year.
