Here are the top 10 most celebrated songs;

1. “White Christmas”by Bing Crosby

The best-selling song in history is “White Christmas,” performed by American singer Bing Crosby (real name Harry Crosby). The song has currently sold over 52 million copies, according to Crosby, who passed away in 1977. Irving Berlin, a Russian-born American composer, wrote the song (real name Israel Beilin). Berlin, who was Jewish, penned the song in 1940 in remembrance of the snowy Christmases he had as a child in New York City. Berlin was thinking about the white Christmases he was used to in New York at the time while spending Christmas in warm California.

2. SHAPE OF YOU“ by Ed Sheeran

The second best-selling song of all time is “Shape of You,” performed by British singer Ed Sheeran. About 42 million copies of the song were sold. The song also broke a record for the most digital downloads sold at the same time. Along with fellow British composers Steve Mac and Johnny McDaid, Sheeran co-wrote the song. After being released in January 2017, the song quickly gained popularity. The song received a Grammy for Best Pop Solo Performance at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards.

3. “ DESPACITO“ by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee

In January 2017, the third most popular song in history was also released. Spanish for “slowly” or “softly,” “Despacito” first gained popularity in Latin America before becoming global in the summer of 2017. Around 38 million copies of the song were sold globally. The song was written by Panamanian singer Erika Ender, Puerto Rican rapper Daddy Yankee, and Puerto Rican singer Luis Fonsi (actual name Luis Rodriguez). The first two recorded and published the song, which swiftly rose to the top of the Latin Pop song charts.

4. “ CANDLE IN THE WIND” by Elton John

“Candle in the Wind” by Elton John is the fourth most popular song of all time. The British singer and fellow British writer Bernie Taupin co-wrote the song’s original lyrics in 1973. Originally, it was meant as a tribute to American singer-actress Marlyn Monroe. Back then, the original song was already well-known.

Elton John sang the new version of the song at Lady Diana Spencer’s funeral in 1997, after John and Taupin had rewritten and re-recorded it. This fresh tribute to the adored princess became a worldwide sensation and sold over 33 million copies. As a double A-side, the single in some nations also featured the song “Something About the Way You Look Tonight.”
