1. Bing Crosby: Christmas Classics
Bing Crosby sings everything better than anyone else. He is, literally, the voice of Christmas. He’s also everywhere at Christmas, so how do you know which album gives you the most bang for your buck? Well, on every Bing Crosby Christmas CD, you will, of course, have Bing singing “White Christmas”. No one else but Bing should sing White Christmas. Ever. This CD has that song on it, along with many other well known Christmas songs, sung superbly by Der Bingle -- including the popular, and fun (though more interesting when it wasn’t played constantly) duet between Bing and David Bowie -- “Peace on Earth/Little Drummer Boy”. But, the gem on this album is a beautiful little song called “The Littlest Angel”. This CD can be played any time, anywhere during the Christmas season.
