Album: Merry Christmas, Baby (2012)

Songfacts®:

  • This is the only original song from Rod Stewart's holiday album Merry Christmas, Baby. Stewart penned the tune with his "American Songbook" producer David Foster and his daughter Amy. "That started out as a jam," Stewart recalled to Billboard magazine. "I started out singing the melody and I loved it, and I was so busy making my own album at the time and writing the lyrics for that I said to David, 'Can you get your daughter to write the lyrics,' so she wrote the lyric and I did the melody."
  • Merry Christmas, Baby was the top selling festive album during the 2012 holiday season. It shifted 862,000 copies from its October release to the end of that year's Christmas period.
