Essential X-mas Music Track 15
"The Little Drummer Boy/Peace On Earth" by Bing Crosby and David Bowie
You learn something new every day.
We all know the tale of the retooling of this song because Bowie did not believe that his part was right for his voice. It's been told to death.
But today, I learned that one month after recording this song with Bowie, Bing Crosby died of a heart attack. That's my pop culture nugget for today. I'm sure it'll pop up in some improv show I do somewhere down the line. They all do.
