Count Your Blessings

Today is Thanksgiving in the US and this song came up on a Thanksgiving playlist so I thought it would be appropriate to play today. It’s Irving Berlin’s Count Your Blessings (Instead Of Sheep) and comes from the film White Christmas, performed by Bing Crosby and Rosemary Clooney. It was nominated for Best Song in the Academy Awards in 1955 but was defeated by Three Coins In The Fountain.

Happy Thanksgiving to anyone following my songs from the US! If it’s your first time on the site, find out more about the 365 Songs project or see all of my November songs here.
