Christmas Song Advent Calendar 2017: Day 20

  • ARTIST: David Bowie & Bing Crosby
  • SONG: Little Drummer Boy (Peace on Earth)
  • ALBUM: Bowie: The Singles Collection (1977, RCA)

Believe it or not, the late great Bowie almost turned down the chance to record this adapted version of the popular carol with Bing for his holiday special in the late 1970s. Thank goodness that his mum being a fan of the ‘White Christmas’ crooner sealed the deal there and then – on its release as a single in 1982, it zoomed in to the top 3 and became one of his biggest singles in the UK.
