The Little Drummer Boy

Posted by on 20 December 2008

little-drummer-boy-christmaWhen I was little, I didn’t care for the song The Little Drummer Boy much.  I watched the tv special every Christmas though.  After I had K, I searched hard to find it on DVD.  Now, we own all of the specials that I grew up on.  I appreciate so much more now than I did then.  I even love The Little Drummer Boy song.  It can be sung so many ways and sends such a great message about Christmas and the birth of Jesus.  I think more often than not, most of us need to take a step back and remember the simple messages, especially during the holidays.

I like the traditional version of The Little Drummer Boy, but I want to share this version.  This features Bing Crosby and David Bowie.  Enjoy!!

    I had forgotten about this one.

    That song wasn’t a fav of mine either and still isn’t. And Silent Night? It’s the most loved Christmas song and my least favorite. Maybe because it’s one you always hear and is sung by everyone? But I did like the kids singing it on my blog.

    I discovered this rendition a couple of years ago — like you, I wasn’t a fan of the song. But, this duet is now my FAVORITE Christmas song. I think it is absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!!!

    I’m so sorry that I haven’t been around if FOREVER!!!! I lost the link to your blog and just found your link in an old post from August. I’m so glad I found it — I’ve been trying to figure out how to get back over here! 🙂

    Debbie, I like so many Christmas songs and carols. It’s hard for me to say that I have a favorite. I couldn’t imagine trying to rate them!! LOL I just bought a new Christmas cd….The Celtic Women. I love it!!

    Rachel, it’s good to see you back again. I’ll be looking forward to seeing you around my blog. I haven’t been to your blog as much as I used to either. I’ve gotten in a bad habit of not commenting when I do visit most blogs because I just have such a limited time.

    I’m glad you like this song. It’s a good one!!

    Ha! I almost put them on one day. They are good. Who knows, there’s still 2 days left. Maybe they’ll show up yet.
