Thanks to the wonders of the Internet, I’ve just learned the singers behind one of my favorite Christmas songs. So, in the spirit of the Christmas season, I thought to share this with my many (more than three) readers.
I’ve heard this song every Christmas season for years now, and never thought much about it other than it was a pretty song. This morning I happened to stumble across a short news article about the history of this song and the singers, and learned that they were none other than David Bowie and Bing Cosby. Being the inquisitive person I am, I went and found the history on the ever-wonderful Wikipedia, then found the original TV special on the also-wonderful YouTube. So, without further ado, here is one of my favorite Christmas songs, “Peace on Earth/Little Drummer Boy” as sung by a most unlikely duet.
