White Christmas is an Irving Berlin song reminiscing about an old-fashioned Christmas setting. According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the version sung by Bing Crosby is the best-selling single of all time, with estimated sales in excess of 50 million copies worldwide. One story is that he wrote it in 1940, in warm La Quinta, California, while staying at the La Quinta Hotel, a frequent Hollywood retreat also favored by writer-producer Frank Capra, although the Arizona Biltmore also claims the song was written there.

Holiday himself-sang this Irving Berlin-penned tune in the 1942 film Holiday Inn, co-starring Marjorie Reynolds and his pal Fred Astaire. The film also contained the Academy Award-winning White Christmas, for which this song was the b-side to when it was released on vinyl in 78 RPM (RIP). 7. New Year’s Eve by Tom Waits. Sounding exactly how you would expect a Tom Waits New Years Eve song to sound, this one even incorporates Auld Lang Syne into the chorus. Waits has said the song was incredibly long but had to be cut down to a pony.
