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.
