Mid-Week Music
What is your favorite winter holiday song?

My favorite is the duet between Bing Crosby & David Bowie, Peace On Earth/Little Drummer Boy. Most people (myself included, for a while) believed that the two had never actually sung together, that the duet was created with the wonders of modern recording technology. But, in fact, David Bowie and Bing Crosby did sing “Little Drummer Boy” together on Bing Crosby’s 42nd Annual Christmas Special, which aired in 1977 soon after the death of Mr. Crosby.

Hearing those two amazing voices together in one nostalgic, heart-touching song always brings a lump to my throat.

I have many holiday favorites, but two of mine are: Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree by Brenda Lee and Here Comes Santa Claus by The Mills Bros.
