"IT'S A MARSHMALLOW WORLD"..THE SONG
"It's a Marshmallow World" is a popular Christmas song that was written in 1949 by Carl Sigman (lyrics) and Peter DeRose (music). Although it has been recorded by many artists, it was first a hit for Bing Crosby backed by The Lee Gordon Singers and the Sonny Burke Orchestra. He didn't like the song and refused to record it at first. Crosby's contract required him to sing it and later his was glad he did as his version recorded in 1950 peaked at number 24 on the pop singles chart in January 1951.
