On the 3rd Day of Christmas, my YouTube gave to me – a couple of blokes who are pretty legendary in the music business, David Bowie and Bing Crosby. This version of “The Little Drummer Boy/Peace On Earth” was recorded in 1977 and is one of the most popular versions of the song. I like it because it was a very unusual pairing for its time. Bowie was still coming off drugs and Crosby was just about at Death’s door. In fact, it was his final Christmas recording before his death. They sing it together so nicely and I put it in my countdown. Its a timeless classic.
