Perry Como Facts
In December 2006, his 1946 recording of "Jingle Bells" topped Billboard magazine's Hot Ringtones chart - five years after he died.

Had a Big Hit with "Lili Marlene" in the US and Canada.

The private Como was exactly as he appeared to the public: a quiet, self-effacing man who considered his performing activities as strictly tertiary to his family and his faith. While he had numerous million-selling singles and albums, he refused to have most of them certified gold (later platinum) out of modesty. A notable exception was when his album "Como's Gold Records" (RCA Victor: 1958) was released. One of the first compilation albums to become a best-seller, with liner notes by Irving Berlin, it became a million-seller in and of itself, and remained on the Billboard charts for more than a decade after its release.
