A Modern Classic
Lavoy Carter | Columbia, South Carolina | 12/07/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a beautiful combination of two great voices in music -- Bing and Bowie. Bing sings the Little Drummer Boy, while Bowie simultaneously sings Peace on Earth -- a mix that truly puts one in the Holiday mood!"
Christmas Memories
Roger D. Launius | Washington, D.C., United States | 12/19/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I first watched Bing Crosby and David Bowie sing this combination of "Little Drummer Boy" and "Peace on Earth" on a Christmas special in the late 1970s. I was in graduate school at the time and balancing a job, school, and a young family did not leave me a lot of time. My wife and two daughters sat down and watched this special, something my hectic life rarely allowed. I don't remember much about the rest of the Christmas special, but this song has stayed with me. It is a beautiful rendition that helped rescue that Christmas for me, as well as several since that time. I think you will like this duet, and perhaps be moved by it, especially its call for peace on Earth which now more than ever seems to be lacking. Enjoy!"
"Agents Sliding Down the Chimney"

"I think this is the only place you'll find this classic and poignant recording. It was taken from a 1977 special that Bing Crosby just months before his untimely death (and aired a few months after the sad news). Bing is fine voice, especially considering this was one of his last performances. When it was aired, I was curious to seeing a rock star on a special hosted by one of the great crooners who went back to World War II. In the spoken introduction, you have Bing humoring David ("Do you know of any older stuff?")and David humoring Bing in return ("Sure, I know of John Lennon and Harry Nilson") before David looks at a sheet of music and proclaims: "This is my son's favorite!" and the 2 begin singing. David adds some new lyrics: "Peace on earth, can it be?"."
