The Best-Selling Single of All Time is Recorded

The song "White Christmas" was recorded by Bing Crosby on May 29, 1942.
May 29, 1942
On this day in 1942, Bing Crosby, along with the Trotter Orchestra and the Darby Singers, recorded Irving Berlin’s song, “White Christmas.” According to the Guinness Book of World Records, this version is the best-selling single of all time with an excess of 50 million copies sold worldwide. Ironically, the version most often heard today is not the original. After frequent use, the master had become damaged, so on March 18, 1947, Crosby and company met again to re-record the famous holiday hit.
