Bing meets Bowie

I almost feel like I created this blog for the sole purpose of posting this video. One of my all time favorite Christmas television moments is one of the most surreal pairings in TV history. A thirty year old David Bowie duets with Bing Crosby on September 11, 1977, just over a month before Crosby would pass away. I have a clear memory of seeing this when it first aired (on 11/30/77) and feeling really strange about watching who had died a few weeks earlier. So here in my first ever Christmas themed entry, “Little Drummer Boy/Peace On Earth,” for you:

Quick note about the tunes

The mp3s on this blog are to give folks a little taste. Imagine they're those little pouches on the bag your Sunday paper comes in. You know, the one's with a packet containing just enough toothpaste to brush your teeth once or twice. They are left up for a limited time. If you find something you like support the artists by dragging your friends to their shows and/or buying their CDs/records/schwag. If you are the artist (or their label/representative) and don't want an mp3 on here, please email me (mike@nowhearthismusic.com) and I'll remove it posthaste.
