Bing Crosby ~ Bing by the Numbers. His Amazing Music Records

Bing Crosby has sold close to one billion records, tapes, compact discs and digital downloads around the world. He may be the biggest selling recording artist of all time. Only The Beatles, Elvis Presley and Michael Jackson can rival Bing’s sales figures. Bing had sold 200 million records by 1960 and the figure had doubled by 1980. His version of “White Christmas,” written by Irving Berlin, remains the bestselling recording of all time with The Guinness Book of World Records reporting worldwide sales of over 50 million singles. Having made over 2,000 commercial recordings and approximately 4,000 radio programs in addition to an extensive list of film and television appearances, Bing Crosby is the most-recorded performer in history. Bing Crosby scored 41 No. 1 records (43 including the second and third chart-toppings of “White Christmas”) — more than The Beatles (24) and Elvis Presley (18).
