Happy Bu-bu-bu-birthday, Bing Crosby!

Crooner extraordinaire Bing Crosby was born 112 years ago today. He’s remembered by many today as a mellow, pipe-smoking, cardigan-wearing grandfather figure, but one need only listen to his early recordings to realize he could swing. That’s right, Bing Crosby was as cool in his day as Elvis was in his; he had thirty-eight #1 singles, more than Presley or the Beatles!

Happy birthday, Der Bingle!
