Martin contributed material to 5 Broadway musicals: Best Foot Forward (1941), Look Ma, I’m Dancin’! (1948), Make a Wish (1951), High Spirits (1964) and a stage version of Meet Me In St. Louis (1989). He was a true songwriting legend. Here is another of his songs from Meet Me in St. Louis, “The Trolley Song”:


Rest in Peace
