White Christmas – The Drifters

White Christmas - The Drifters - Christmas Song

This rendition of White Christmas was recorded by Clyde McPhatter and the Drifters in 1953. Their recording of the song peaked at number 2 on Billboard’s R&B chart in December 1954. The Christmas song received a boost in the early 1990s, when it was prominently featured in the film Home Alone during a scene in which the lead character Kevin is applying his father’s aftershave while lip syncing the lyrics.

White Christmas was written by Irving Berlin for the Movie “Holiday Inn” and recorded by Bing Crosby in 1942, and received the Academy Award in that year. Crosby recorded it again in 1947, and that recording has become the standard. It was also featured in the 1954 movie White Christmas with Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney, and Vera-Ellen. White Christmas is the biggest selling Christmas song of all time.

Song Lyrics

Ooh
Doop doop, doop doo doop
Ooh
Doop doop, doop doo doop

I’m dreaming of a white Christmas,
Just like the ones I used to know,
Where those treetops glisten, and children listen,
To hear sleigh bells in the snow, the snow

Then, I-I-I am dreaming of a white Christmas,
With every Christmas card I write,
May your days, may your days, may your days be merry and bright,
And may all your Christmases be white

I-I-I am dreaming of a white Christmas,
Just like the ones I used to know,
Where the treetops glisten, and children listen,
To hear sleigh bells in the snow

I-I-I am dreaming of a white Christmas,
With every Christmas card I write,
May your days, may your days, may your days be merry and bright,
And may all your Christmases be white

Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle bells all the way
Ooooh
