Story Behind the Song: ‘White Christmas’ by Bing Crosby

White Christmas
lety3181 via You Tube

There’s nothing that says Christmas, like the song “White Christmas” by Bing Crosby. It’s the only thing that makes me hope for snow.

Listening to it will take you back to Christmas in your life long ago. It is in fact, a story of an old-fashioned Christmas.

According to the Guinness World Records, the version sung by Bing Crosby is the best-selling single of all time, with estimated sales in excess of 100 million copies worldwide.

The song was written by Irving Berlin. The first public performance of the song was by Bing Crosby, on his NBC radio show The Kraft Music Hall on Christmas Day, 1941.

The version most often heard today is not the original Crosby recording, as the master had become damaged due to frequent use. Crosby re-recorded the track on March 19, 1947, accompanied again by the Trotter Orchestra and the Darby Singers, with every effort made to reproduce the original recording session.
