White Christmas Irving Berlin (Excerpt)
I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
Where the treetops glisten
And children listen
To hear sleigh bells in the snow …

Fred Astaire will never say, though he’s always asked, which of his dancing ladies was his favorite partner. If you ask me, he preferred the solo turns.

Fred Astaire
I have no desire to prove anything by dancing. I have never used it as an outlet or a means of expressing myself. I just dance. I just put my feet in the air and move them around.

Irving Berlin’s White Christmas

The Most-Recorded Christmas Song of All Time

Irving Berlin was known to stay up all night writing music and lyrics. White Christmas was a song he created during one such session. In the morning he reportedly told his musical secretary, “I just wrote the best song I’ve ever written–hell, I just wrote the best song that anybody’s ever written!”

White Christmas will forever be associated with Bing Crosby, who debuted the holiday tune on his NBC radio show The Kraft Music Hall on Christmas Day, 1941. The following year, the song was introduced on a large scale in the musical Holiday Inn. In the film, Bing Crosby sang a duet with Marjorie Reynolds. The song received an Academy Award for Best Original Song. Another Bing Crosby musical, White Christmas, starring Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney, and Vera-Ellen, was the highest-grossing film of 1954.

White Christmas has been covered by hundreds of artists, including Frank Sinatra, Perry Como, Elvis Presley, Doris Day, The Partridge Family, Neil Diamond, Linda Ronstadt, Taylor Swift, Boy George, and Rod Stewart. According to the 2008 Guinness Book of Records, Bing Crosby’s recording of the popular Christmas song is the biggest selling single of all time!
