The Biggest Selling and Most Popular Song of All Time

The Biggest Selling and Most Popular Song of All Time.

It's amazing to see what The Biggest Selling and Most Popular Song of All Time was. Was it a love song? Sort of. Was it a sad song? Not really. Was it a fast song? No way, Jose. Was it a hip hop song? Thankfully not.

As a matter of fact the song writer and the artist that sang it may not even been knowon to anyone born after the year 2000 yet they hear this song all the time EVERY YEAR.

The best selling song sold over 50 million copies - and we're not including digital downloads - by an artist born in the early twentieth century who sold over 1.5 billion records. He sold more than Elvis and the Beatles combined and he was not a rock n roller.

He is Bing Crosby and the song is "White Christmas". The composer was the great Irving Berlin, himself Jewish and not Christian.

Yes, the all time best selling song of all time is a Christmas song and it is doubtful any song would ever topple it. Interestingly enough, the number 3 song is "Silent Night" by Bing as well.

There's no need to go into the enough power of either of theses two songs, or the artistry or the ingenuity or the lyrics or images the songs conjure up.

But because it is Christmas, I want to further share these two wonderful songs.



I love the choral singers as well as Bing's beautiful whistling. May all your Christmases be white!

Here is Silent Night - the most popular religious song about the Birth of Our Lord. This song was not written by Irving Berlin, BTW, but by a Catholic priest. This recording of "Silent Night" is not the complete song as it was written but the version bought by most people around the globe.



More about this song Silent Night.

THANK YOU all for a wonderful year. 
MERRY CHRISTMAS!
