This brief and infinitely touching song was written by the then novice team of Hugh Martin and Ralph Blane for the 1944 MGM film Meet Me in St Louis; it has remained their most enduring creation, memorably sung in the film by Judy Garland playing Esther, a young girl cheering up her little sister as their family faces leaving the home they love in St Louis to move to an uncertain future in New York. Garland’s performances of this song at troop concerts, coming at a time when many servicemen and women were parted from their families, reportedly brought her audiences to tears.
