Billboard Bing

A few years ago my wife bought me this book for Christmas called Christmas in the Charts 1920-2004 by Joel Whitburn. It features the complete history of every Christmas, New Year's, seasonal single and album that charted on the Billboard charts from 1920 to 2004. Of course Bing Crosby is the artist with the most different songs on the charts. This mix includes all of those tunes. Bing recorded several versions of some of these, so I decided to include only one version of each song.

Track Listing

1. Silent Night
2. Adeste Fideles (Oh, Come, All Ye Faithful)
3. White Christmas (1947)
4. Let's Start The New Year Right
5. I'll Be Home For Christmas (If Only In My Dreams)
6. Jingle Bells (with The Andrews Sisters)
7. Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town (with The Andrews Sisters)
8. Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer
9. A Crosby Christmas (Part 1) (with Gary, Phillip, Dennis and Lindsay Crosby)
10. A Crosby Christmas (Part 2) )with Gary, Phillip, Dennis and Lindsay Crosby)
11. A Marshmallow World
12. Silver Bells (with Carol Richards)
13. How Lovely Is Christmas
14. Do You Hear What I Hear?
15. The White World Of Winter
16. Peace On Earth/Little Drummer Boy (with David Bowie)
