Something Fun for a Friday: Bing Crosby and David Bowie Sing a Christmas Duet


I first watched Bing Crosby and David Bowie sing this combination of “Little Drummer Boy” and “Peace on Earth” on a Christmas special in the late 1970s. I was in graduate school at the time and balancing a job, school, and a young family did not leave me a lot of time. My wife and two daughters sat down and watched this special, something my hectic life rarely allowed. I don’t remember much about the rest of the Christmas special, but this song has stayed with me. It is a beautiful rendition that helped rescue that Christmas for me, as well as several since that time. I think you will like this duet, and perhaps be moved by it, especially its call for peace on Earth, which now more than ever seems to be lacking. Enjoy!
