Play, Repeat: My Current Song Obsession #15

Little Drummer Boy/Peace On Earth- Bing Crosby & David Bowie

This is by far one of my favorite Christmas songs. The combination of the two songs and both Crosby and Bowie’s voices bring out the best of both worlds. Bowie’s higher range blended with Crosby’s lower tones creates a beautiful sound and create a new depth to the music. I feel that this is a very unique Christmas classic.

This track was originally recorded for Bing Crosby’s Merrie Olde Christmas television special in September of 1977.  Sadly Bing Crosby  passed away the next month and did not see the recording air on television.

Play, Repeat: My Current Song Obsession #14

Big Empty -Stone Temple Pilots 

I woke up for work on Friday morning and was in shock when I heard that Scott Weiland had passed away. I wanted to make this Play, Repeat a special dedication to his many great contributions to music.  I don’t think that people should focus on the negative from his personal life but rather focus on how much of a talent the music world has lost.  He was a very gifted frontman and lyricist. I decided to share one of my favorite songs Big Empty as a way for me to say goodbye and thank you Scott for being a voice of inspiration. R.I.P. Scott Weiland
