Sunday Monday Or Always 78 by Bing Crosby

September 29, 2011

“Sunday Monday Or Always” by Bing Crosby was the number one song in the United States for seven weeks beginning September 11, 1943. Frank Sinatra released a similar version but it stalled at number nine.

It was another song recorded in the midst of the mmusicians strike. It was so well done that you really had to listen closely before you realized there was no instrumental backing. The use of backing voices fill in for the missing musicians.

Crosby had his first chart hit with the Paul Whiteman orchestra during 1927 and during the latter half of the 1940s would be one of the biggest, if not the biggest star in the world. His single “White Christmas” was the biggest selling single of all time.

He released 409 singles during the course of his career and this was one of his best.
