I want to expose people (especially young people) to all kinds of music. I chose the 20th century because it produced an eclectic taste of many styles of music. At the end of most of my short descriptions it will say, check out their music. I can only scratch the surface of all the great music, you must explore for yourself. Luckily, you have 21st century technology to help you. Enjoy the adventure. Please comment, make requests, or ask questions.

Until the Beatles came along, Bing Crosby was the most popular and largest record selling musical artist of the 20th century. This song, "Galway Bay" was #3 on the hit list in 1949. Bing had been singing 20 years by that time. Bing's version of "White Christmas" became the largest selling single record of the whole 20th century. Check out his music and find out why he was so popular for so many decades.
