3443. Louis Armstrong with Gordon Jenkins & His Orchestra - White Christmas
From: What a Wonderful Christmas; Year: 1997 (1950s); Genre: Jazz/Christmas Music
Here's one that everyone should play this time of year or anytime you're feeling down and pining for the Holidays.
Really though, how do you make a legendary Irving Berlin hit even better; yep, have Mr. Louis Armstrong lend his voice to it, and boy does he ever do this song great. Not bagging on any other legendary vocalist whose done the song, but I'm admittedly quite partial to Pops and his unmistakable voice and music.

Hear Pops' incredible version of White Christmas on YouTube.
