Today’s featured ‘Music To Read overtheshouldermedia By’ down at the bottom of the page

The Best-Selling Single of All Time
For most of us, the music and lyrics of Irving Berlin’s “White Christmas” are inseparable from Bing Crosby’s famous version of the tune, which perfectly captures a sense of longing for an old-fashioned Christmas “…just like the ones I used to know”. It’s a seemingly magical place where everyone, regardless of the actual location of their birth, or particular childhood experience, fondly remembers a scene “where treetops glisten, and children listen, to hear sleigh bells in the snow.” The mental imagery produced by the Berlin’s music and Crosby’s soothing baritone voice is simply that strong.

Crosby’s original recording of the song was made in May 1942, and was released in July as part of a collection of songs featured in the film Holiday Inn. Perhaps because it was released during the middle of Summer, the single didn’t begin to generate much interest until October, when it finally climbed to the top of the charts. In the midst of the Christmas season of 1942, the song took on a special significance for millions of American soldiers longing for the comforts of home while stationed overseas during World War II, as well as for the families of those men, wishing for their safe return.

Irving Berlin wrote “White Christmas” in 1940, possibly intending it to be used as part of a musical revue in a Broadway production featuring his original compositions. The little known opening verse of the song, not used in Crosby’s rendition, has caused some confusion about Berlin’s actual whereabouts while writing the lyric; “The sun is shining, the grass is green, the orange and palm tree sway, there’s never been such a day, in Beverly Hills, LA.” Even though the composer had spent time working in Hollywood and writing music for various productions in the late 1930s, recent research suggests that he almost certainly wrote the tune during the holiday break at his home in New York City, where he spent the Winter of 1939-40.

In any case, the undeniable popularity of the song owes much to the convergence of the talents of one of American’s most popular composers, the most beloved singer of the day, and to the circumstances of millions of American G.I.’s and their families during the war. In the more than 70 years since its initial release, no other Christmas song has captured the imagination of the public in quite the same way, and it will almost certainly continue to be a part of our collective holiday dreams, real or imagined, 70 years from now.
