Composed by Jay Livingston and Ray Evans

Bing Crosby and Carol Richards


"Silver Bells" was introduced by Bob Hope and Marilyn Maxwell in a motion picture called The Lemon Drop Kid in 1951. The first recorded version was by Bing Crosby and Carol Richards in 1950, which also became a hit in late 1952. The lyrics are unusual for a Christmas song in that they describe the holiday in the city, and not a rural setting.

"Silver Bells," recorded September 8, 1950 with Carole Richards and John Scott Trotter and His Orchestra.
