“Little Drummer Boy” performed by Bing Crosby and David Bowie (1977)

19 10 2008

Does it get any better than this?  The great crooner, Bing Crosby, and David Bowie together, singing a beautiful arrangement of one of my favorite Christmas songs.  Sadly, Mr. Crosby passed away shortly after taping this special.  I’ll just let these two fine people speak for themselves through this performance.

I’ve always liked “Little Drummer Boy” for it’s simple premise:  a young boy, with no money, offers to play his instrument for his gift.

Do people ever really listen to the words of these holiday songs?  Peace on Earth?  Crazy idea, huh?
