Erik's musical Advent calendar - December 15

Bing Crosby - "White Christmas"

If this song doesn't spell Christmas, no song does. Bing Crosby's take on Irving Berlin's "White Christmas" encapsulates it all, the hopes and wishes, the joyful memories of Christmases past, the gleeful expectations of Christmases to follow, and in the song's 1942 arrangement, the warm and gentle voice of Crosby that is complemented by a female choir sounding just like it was lifted out of the most classic of animated Disney films from the era. Everything about this song is stunningly beautiful. "May your days be merry and bright, and may all your Christmases be white", indeed!

Watch and listen
