A song created separately from the Beatles, this famous Christmas tune was also in-part a protest against the Vietnam war. A varied note range makes the letter notes below great practice for beginners :)

Did you know? This has been covered by Celine Dion, Sarah McLachlan, The Fray, Neil Diamond, Sarah Brightman, Carly Simon, Jessica Simpson and of course has featured in Glee!
