Judy Garland (Dear Mr. Gable) You Made Me Love You

legend this song was written or adapted for Judy Garland to sing to

parties on a regular basis. Many of these parties would be filmed
and shown as extras before or after an MGM movie. The original song
would be recorded over and over by artists such as Debbie Reynolds
Al Jolson and Harry James.

Ray Noble I've Got My Love To Keep Me Warm Written by Irving Berlin and first introduced in the film On
The Avenue with Dick Powell and Alice Faye, two major film stars of
the time, the song would go on to be interpreted by different artists
in different ways. First, the song was recorded as a love song, but

to songs like Baby It's Cold Outside and Winter Wonderland. Not necessarily
a specific Christmas song but somehow associated with the holiday.
