December 25, 1982 David Bowie and Bing Crosby’s duet, The Little Drummer Boy/Peace On Earth, reaches #1 in the UK.
Merry Christmas everyone!
Today was a beautiful day although I ate too much and feel a little blargie. I don’t know if that’s a real word but that’s what Claudia and i call it when we are stuffed! It was those damn shrimp parmigiana! I just can’t stop eating them, and it doesn’t help that Claudia cooks for an army even though we only had 6 people today! We missed having our Casey today, and I want to wish all my family and good friends a Merry Christmas and a good safe holiday week!
I was practicing The Little Drummer Boy this afternoon as we were getting ready for an early dinner and my father-in-law Mike suggested I add a little left hand drum drone, and of course he was right! So he gets credit for this arrangement of drummer boy!
This was a great duet – Bing Crosby had such a rich baritone voice and David Bowie sang tenor and they sounded great together!
The Little Drummer Boy! more tomorrow.
