§ I Am Music and I Pick the Songs: White Christmas

{Song #44 « Song #45 » Song #46}

§ ≡ One of an ongoing series of posts in which I pick, in my not-so-humble opinion, the best songs of the second millennium. Feel free to offer constructive dissenting opinions; preferably set to music.

Song #45 is White Christmas, composed by Irving Berlin. The version sung by Bing Crosby is the best selling single of all time. Think about that; a Russian-born Jewish American wrote a song about Christmas that a Roman-Catholic American of English-Irish heritage turned into the most popular song (not just Christmas song) of all time! God Bless America.
