Bing Crosby - I'll Be Home For Christmas
Image: http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/61MS3M5UGIL._SY300_.jpg


Maybe its Bing’s smooth voice that gets everyone in the Christmas Spirit. Maybe it’s the relaxing guitar playing during the first verse that makes this a great song. Maybe it’s the lyrics paired with the soft strings that make people think of better times and days spent with their family that brings a tear to one’s eye.
Here is a little info about the song’s origins.
quote:

"I'll be Home for Christmas" was written by Kim Gannon and Walter Kent in the early 1940s. But they couldn't find anyone to record it.
Music executives felt that with so many soldiers fighting in World War II, the line "I'll be home for Christmas, if only in my dreams" was too sad for families at what's supposed to be a joyous time of year.
But one man disagreed. Bing Crosby had Gannon sing him the song while the two were playing golf together in 1943, and Crosby loved it--recording it later that year and releasing it as the B-side to his monster hit "White Christmas."
And instead of making soldiers overseas sad, it filled them with hope, so much so that whenever Bing Crosby played a holiday show for the troops, "I'll Be Home For Christmas" was his most requested song.


Whatever it is that makes this song special to you, we can all now agree that it isn’t truly Christmas without Bing and I’ll Be Home for Christmas. This has been a fun tournament and I look forward to hosting the 2020 tournament.

Merry Christmas ya Filthy Animals.

O Holy Night is the best song. Celine Dion singing it was a bad choice. Should be sung by a good choir...

I don’t accept these results. It’s not even the best Bing song.

Sorry we don't have an electoral college to ensure equal OT representation.

Haven’t you heard? If I don’t like the results I’m just gonna bury you in litigation and investigation.
