"Christmas Must Be Tonight", written by Robbie Robertson, was originally recorded in 1975, but did not appear on The Band's 1975 album, Northern Lights, Southern Cross. The song was re-recorded and subsequently appeared on The Band's 1977 album, Islands. This version of the song is from that album. Robbie Robertson later recorded two versions of "Christmas Must Be Tonight", both in 1988. One version appeared on the Scrooged soundtrack in 1988; the other re-recorded version was released in 1995 on the album, Wind, Fire and Snow - Songs For The Holiday Season.
