In July, 1945 Mel Torme and Bob Wells wrote the Christmas Song, sometimes know as Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire, as an antidote to the sweltering heat on a Southern California afternoon. It took them about 45 minutes. Nat King Cole made it a hit, recording it four times. Since then, it has been recorded over and over by such diverse artists as Frank Sinatra, Christina Aguilera, Aretha Franklin, Babyface, Chicago, Big Bird and Bob Dylan.
