Do You Hear What I Hear?




"Do You Hear What I Hear?" is a Christmas song written in October 1962 with lyrics by Noël Regney and music by Gloria Shayne Baker. The pair were married at the time, and wrote it as a plea for peace during the Cuban Missile Crisis. It has sold tens of millions of copies and has been covered by hundreds of different artists.

"Do You Hear What I Hear?" was released shortly after Thanksgiving in 1962. The song was originally recorded by Harry Simeone Chorale. It went on to sell more than quarter-million copies during the 1962 Christmas holiday season.
