Perry Como was known for his crooning and his cardigan sweaters, both perfectly suitable for a Winter Wonderland.
You’re on the Sound Beat.
This RCA Victor recording of Winter Wonderland was made in 1946 by Como and the Satisfiers. The Satisfiers were a vocal group that consisted of Bob Lange, Ted Hansen, and Art Lambert. The recording also featured Russ Case and his Orchestra.
The music was composed by Felix Bernard and the lyrics were written by Dick Smith. Even though it’s considered a Christmas song, Winter Wonderland doesn’t actually mention the holiday. Instead it’s about the budding relationship of a couple during the winter season.
