It’s that time of year again, and so I post my favorite Christmas song.
But you ask- “why is this one your favorite, Kincaid?”
I’ll tell you. It melded the standard-bearer of my parent’s musical taste- the legendary Bing Crosby, with one of my very favorite artists- David Bowie.
It took a traditional carol and wrapped it around a contemporary piece of music.
And, finally- it’s just a beautiful song that never fails to make me teary-eyed.
from “Bing Crosby’s Merrie Olde Christmas” Bing passed away before this could aire on television. Initial release is November 30, 1977.
