It is hard to believe but it has already been over four decades since Bing Crosby and David Bowie made Christmas music history when they released the song “Little Drummer Boy/Peace on Earth.”

This iconic song features two cross-genre musical artists performing a beautiful classic together. The song is so legendary that Will Ferrel and John C. Reilly performed a remake in an effort to poke fun at themselves. This funny parody clearly pays respect to the original song.

The song is part of the original production of “Bing Crosby’s Merrie Olde Christmas.” This video was released to the public just five weeks after Crosby’s death.

One of the best parts of the video is when Bowie does not realize who Crosby is when he arrives at the home. After a little small talk and a few comedic moments, Bowie tells Crosby that his six-year-old son loves Christmas. This prompts Crosby to ask what traditions are important to the Bowie family.

But the definitive highlight is when the two finally start singing the classic song. Nobody could have predicted at the time that the song would go on to be such a hit. The song has withstood the test of time and is still a popular addition on any Christmas music playlist.

Even if you have heard the song thousands of times, watching the full video is something that never gets old. Be sure to check out this classic video at least once this holiday season. After you have watched the clip, you can spread the holiday cheer to everyone that you know.
