Merry Christmas Jayish & RJD
This rendition of White Christmas was recorded by Clyde McPhatter and the Drifters in 1953. It was #2 on the charts in 1954. Animation is by Joshua Held in 2002.
White Christmas was written by Irving Berlin for the Movie "Holiday Inn" and recorded by Bing Crosby in 1942, and received the Academy Award in that year. Crosby recorded it again in 1947, and that recording has become the standard. It was also featured in the 1954 movie White Christmas with Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney, and Vera-Ellen.
White Christmas is the biggest selling Christmas song of all time.
They don't make groups like The Drifters anymore...
Clyde McPhatter’s high notes and Bill Pinkney’s bass is my all time favorite version of “White Christmas!” (Sorry Bing.) This particular recording saw a recent resurgence in popularity when it was featured in one of the “Home Alone” movies. I think it was the first one.
