    White Christmas

     

    According to Guinness World Records, Irving Berlin's "White Christmas" (1942) as performed by Bing Crosby is the best-selling single worldwide, with estimated sales of over 50 million copies.

    "Candle in the Wind," has passed Bing Crosby's "White Christmas" as the biggest-selling single in history, the folks at Guinness Book of Records said.

    Has it or hasn't it ? Is it or isn't it ? The internet definitely does not know for sure .

    The school I went to taught me the 50million is larger than 33 million

    perhaps you should give up being an electrician, and go into politics

    gonfission:

    Bing Crosby’s (USA, 1903–77) “White Christmas” has sold an estimated 50 million copies worldwide. The festive favourite was written by Irving Berlin (USA, 1888–1989) in 1940, recorded in 18 minutes on 29 May 1942 and introduced in Berlin’s musical movie Holiday Inn (USA, 1942), starring Crosby and Fred Astaire (USA, 1899–1987). First appearing on a collection of songs from the movie in July 1942, “White Christmas” reached No.1 on the National List of Best-Selling Retail Records chart – a forerunner of the Billboard Hot 100 – in October 1942, where it remained for 11 consecutive weeks. “Candle in the Wind 1997”, Elton John and Bernie Taupin’s (both UK) tribute to Diana, Princess of Wales (UK, 1961-97), has sold 33 million copies worldwide and is regarded as the best-selling single since US and UK singles charts began in the 1950s.

    The interweb says so, so, it must be true. Unless 33 became > 50 while I was sleeping?

    interpret it any way you want. 50 is still > 33, this (>) means larger than, just saying

    Since all-time began, it's been White Christmas with 50 million WORLDWIDE
