Bing Crosby recorded more than 1,700 songs for commercial release between 1926 and 1977. Bing's real name was Harry Lillis Crosby. The nickname was given to him by a childhood friend who thought the young Harry resembled "Bingo," the lead character in their favorite comic book, "The Bingville Bugle."
