Jan 5th 2011 12:19PM This song is undisputed!
However, we must not confuse Bing's performance with the compositional genius of the song. The composer/lyricist to the song is Irving Berlin, a man described by the great Jerome Kern as "[having] no place in American Music - he IS American Music." Irving Berlin wrote over 900 songs. Some of his most famous include "Happy Holidays," "Blue Skies," and "God Bless America" (yes, the song you all probably sing around July 4th).
Back to Bing: The Bing Crosby version of "White Christamas" is the number one selling record (song) of ALL TIME (over 100 million records across all formats). The song is also the MOST COVERED SONG IN THE WORLD with over 500 different versions being popularly recorded.
Check the Guiness Book of World Records and the Harry Fox Agency. It's there.
I would only dispute that the real undisputed figure here is Irving Berlin. Mister Crosby is a close second though. :)

Makes me wonder: who the hell applied for this position and where did they find this writer? What are the editors doing in response to the negative reactions. Is there any accountability or must we forever deal with a weekly, unthorough posting that incite contempt more than insight?
Mar 23rd 2010 3:58PM Does anyone else feel that over the last 4 weeks the majority of responses to the new resto shaman posts have been very negative and critical?
Part of me wants to remind everyone that THEY could have applied for the position and have written better content, but the other part of me really thinks that these past resto shaman posts are very, VERY bad.

Feb 19th 2010 12:54PM Good point that it IS a 101 post.
However, the post also chooses to discuss end-game gemming options. The post itself is contradictory in its aim: is it a 101 post or is it trying to make a statistical claims (best gemming/glyphing) without any stated evidence?
There's no reason to trust this writer's opinion over EJ or the former resto shaman columnist.
Dec 11th 2009 11:38AM I know that's not proactive enough - although I definitely plan on going that route.
Dec 11th 2009 11:26AM So I have a pretty big question:
I've been dating this fantastic girl for half a year. Whenever I play WoW, she's always teases me, calls me a nerd and comments on how she doesn't "get the game." She goes around telling her girlfriends, "I'm perfect, except for the fact that I play WoW." This is fine. She's not a gamer (neither am I, really. I ONLY play WoW...nothing else...NOTHING else...). I raid every Tuesday night with the occasional Sunday and she doesn't complain - just teases.
Well about a week ago, I jokingly bring up, "Hey, baby. Maybe you should play WoW with me sometime. After all, I read Harry Potter with you and I really enjoyed it. Maybe you'd like WoW..." Low and behold she replies, "Sure." My jaw hits the ground. She goes on to say, "I'll probably like it. Hell, I'd probably even get addicted to it."
So here's my problem: I know my girlfriend is not going to actively search out the game, load it onto her mac and surprise me in-game (that'd be great). We live in NYC so we can't afford to go out all the time. This seems like it would be a real fun way to spend a night or two a week. I offered to pay for the game and her monthly fee if she were to play with me.
This notion of playing the game with her really excites me, but how do I buy the game and give it to her in such a way without seeming too pushy. I know I only have one chance here. Push the idea too hard and she'll think I'm an addict. Don't push it all and it'll never happen. While she says she wants to play, I imagine this is something akin to being dragged to see "Up In The Air": you go, out of love for the other person, then you realize you're tearing up near the end. Damn, I actually liked that movie...
Essential question: How should I progress? How did others bring their signifigant others into the Azeroth? Most importantly, what class should she play (I've got a lvl 30 priest alt ready to rock...)?!
