How many songs did Bing Crosby record?
According to Steven Lewis' Bing Crosby Internet Museum, Crosby recorded more than 1,700 songs for commercial release between 1926 and 1977.
And here's a bonus... Bing's real name was Harry Lillis Crosby. His nickname was given to him by a childhood friend who thought little Harry resembled "Bingo" the lead character in their favorite comic book "The Bingville Bugle."
