Did you know?


The Chipmunks rode the holiday season sleigh all the way to three Grammy awards in 1958. Ross Bagdasarian Sr. wrote and performed “The Chipmunk Song (Christmas Don’t Be Late).” Yes, he was both David Seville and the fictitious three singing creatures named Alvin, Simon, and Theodore. The song, released by Liberty Records in the winter of ’58, earned Best Comedy Performance, Best Children’s Recording, and Best Engineered Record (non-classical) awards. In just seven weeks it sold 4,5 million copies and reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 pop singles Chart. It was No. 1 for four weeks. As recently as 2011, Nielsen SoundScan estimated the digital version of the song had been downloaded 867,000 times, making it the third best-selling holiday digital single (behind hits from Mariah Carey and Trans-Siberian Orchestra).
