David Bowie and Bing Crosby - Little Drummer Boy or Peace On Earth

It's hard to imagine a time when we had three major networks, two PBS stations, no DVR and not even any video tapes. If you wanted to see something, you had to watch it when it was on.

During most of the 70's, we were limited on the television we could watch. Until December. During December the restrictions were relaxed and we watched lots of Christmas specials, and Christmas episodes of our favorite shows. One Christmas special I remember seeing was Bing Crosby's. At the time I saw this, I didn't know who David Bowie was. I just knew that when I heard this song, I loved it.

I love that version. I had never seen the video of it...thanks for posting it!
It nice to have simple, heartfelt Christmas music to listen to. The kind that invoke thought and a desire to give and serve others.
