What would Christmas be without Bing? So many great memories are tied to his deep, dreamy voice. With an estimated 50 million copies sold worldwide, “White Christmas” is the best-selling single of all-time according to the Guinness Book of World Records.
It’s Christmas! Why stop at only one Bing Crosby tune? This was written as a tribute to American soldiers away from their families fighting in World War 2.
This classic was written by Hugh Martin and Ralph Blane, and originally recorded by Judy Garland in 1944 for the musical “Meet Me In St. Louis.” Interestingly enough, some of the lyrics were initially rejected by Garland for sounding “too depressing.” Martin altered the words from “It may be your last, Next year we may all be living in the past,” to “Let your heart be light, next year all your troubles will be out of sight.” It does have a nicer ring to it, there’s no denying!
“Jingle Bell Rock” was written in 1957 by the songwriting duo Boothe and Beal. It was recorded by singer Bobby Helms and guitarist Hank Garland, who for many years claimed they had written the Christmas standard.
If there was an official song of Christmas, this would be it. An anthem so beautiful that it was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame.
“Frosty the Snowman” was written by Walter Rollins and Steve Nelson, and recorded by Gene Autry and the Cass County Boys in 1950.
