White Christmas

Bing Crosby's version, which has sold over 40 million copies, took only 18 minutes to record.

Bing's version, released in December 1942, was recognized as the best-selling single in any music category for more than 50 years until 1998 when Elton John's tribute to Princess Diana, "Candle in the Wind", overtook it in a matter of months.
