Each day, the Bbox team trolls YouTube for the hot clip—sometimes it's a brand-new moment and sometimes it's a throwback to an oldie but goodie. No matter what praise hands are shot up, pearls are clutched and the repeat button is hit.

"The Trolley Song" from Meet Me In St. Louis (Shereen Ahmed)

Ulterior Motives: Irish Repertory Theatre virtual holiday special of Meet Me In St. Louis was A+. The theatre company sweetly succeeded in creating a fabulously paced adaptation with Charlotte Moore, the original Anna Smith from the original Broadway production, at the helm! It's marvelous to travel back to yesteryear with the Smith family as the daughters fall in love with their beaus all the while anxiously awaiting the 1904 World's Fair in their beloved St. Louis. If you want a warm and cozy musical to enjoy this holiday season featuring "The Trolley Song" and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas," look no further than Meet Me In St. Louis.

Ultimate 🙌 🙌 moment: The charming Shereen Ahmed who most recently made her Broadway debut in the revival of My Fair Lady takes on the role of Esther Smith made famous by Miss Judy Garland in the Vincente Minnelli directed film adaptation. We could not wait to hear her take on this showstopper and Act 1 Finale. Enjoy this special sneak peek of "The Trolley Song!" Our ultimate moment is that fantastic 0:23 - 0:27 in the Hugh Martin & Ralph Blane tune.
