‘The Little Drummer Boy’

This rendition of The Little Drummer Boy by the Harry Simeone Chorale deeply moved me. Maybe it was the video. All the dreadful things that happen–and yet there’s still Christmas. God gave it to us because He knows we need it.


By Request: Bing & Bowie

Requested by Ina–Bing Crosby and David Bowie sing The Little Drummer Boy, and Peace on Earth–at the same time! Without messing up either of them. Don’t try this at home, folks. You’ve got to be a pro.


By Request, Two Hymns for One

From The Little Drummer Boy, Guy Penrod segues right into We Three Kings: requested by Jeremy. We’re getting our carol contest back on track!


By Request, Encore, ‘The Little Drummer Boy’

This has been a favorite for a lot of people, Bing Crosby and David Bowie together, singing The Little Drummer Boy with Peace on Earth–sort of a complicated arrangement, but these two were pros.

Requested by Marcia.


By Request, ‘The Little Drummer Boy’ (Crosby & Bowie)

Georgia asked for this one: The Little Drummer Boy, by Bing Crosby and David Bowie, from the last TV special Bing ever did.


By Request, ‘The Little Drummer Boy’

Our friend “theWhiteRabbit” asked for The Little Drummer Boy. I hope you like this performance of it by Celtic Woman.

Do you believe this? God looked down on the world and saw it was just as cruel, just as bad, as in the days of Noah. The strong prey on the weak, lies prey on truth, and the cry of it goes all the way up to Heaven. How can God heal it?

He sends a baby. Born in a manger, because there was no room at the inn.

Told you Christianity is wild!


Bing Crosby, ‘The Little Drummer Boy’

This is from our esteemed colleague, “jessicafischerqueen”: The Little Drummer Boy, by Bing Crosby. You could do a lot worse than to spend Christmas Eve with your mother and father and a lot of cozy animals.

Bing and David, ‘The Little Drummer Boy’

Requested by Ina, The Little Drummer Boy featuring a duet by Bring Crosby and David Bowie–two giants from two very different eras of popular music. Bing died just before this could be shown on television, and David passed away recently. Now they sing on Christ’s Kingdom.


Bring Crosby and David Bowie Sing ‘The Little Drummer Boy’… Together

All right, a reader asked for this, so here it is–Bing Crosby and David Bowie performing together.

It should be borne in mind that Bing Crosby kept his voice right to the end. I was surprised to see how well he and David Bowie harmonized. Almost shocking to see that David Bowie actually understood and practiced music. Which goes to show you what 21st century music is like.

So, Ina, this one’s for you.


Hymn, ‘The Little Drummer Boy’

By reader request, here’s The Little Drummer Boy–complete with real, live drummer boy. Wow, can that kid sing!

Into this evil age, into this fallen world, comes Jesus Christ Our Lord.

Sing louder, Christians! For our redemption is at hand.
