In 1977 an unlikely duo joined forces for what was to become a Christmas classic. Each year crooner Bing Crosby produced a televised Christmas special and in 77 his guest was none other than David Bowie. Bowie joined Crosby for what seemed like an odd duet of a an original song “Peace on Earth” with the traditional Christmas tune “Little Drummer Boy”. The result…magical!
Here is the video of the scene from the TV special and the duet itself. For those of us who saw the original airing it remains a staple of our Christmas playlists. And for those who didn’t well, enjoy!
You can listen to music ‘Little Drummer Boy/Peace on Earth’, and other Christmas tunes from the 60s, 70s & 80s throughout the Holiday Season on Dusty Discs Radio.
