5. The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire)
'Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire' is actually only a subtitle to this popular festive tune. It was written in 1944 by Mel Tormé and Bob Wells, and recorded by the Nat King Cole Trio in 1946. The lush flowing strings give this track a iconic film music feel.
