Composed by Frank Loesser in 1947, “What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve?” achieved a spot in the top 10 of the Billboard Best-Selling Retail R&B charts.
Notably, this classic has been performed by other legendary artists, including Ella Fitzgerald and Diana Krall. However, it’s Nancy Wilson’s remarkable feat of propelling it onto the Christmas charts in two separate years during the 1960s that arguably stands as the standard’s most significant claim to fame.
