   David Bowie and Bing Crosby teamed up for the most unusual pairing of the most unnatural crooners in the history of all duets, and, remarkably, were a tremendous success in their rendition of "Little Drummer Boy", with a hastily written back melody "Peace on Earth." This rare pairing occurred in 1977, on Bing Crosby's television Christmas Show, just one month before the passing of Bing Crosby, who is best known as a crooner styled singer, from the 1940's / 1950's, and a popular actor from the 1950s / 1960s.

    Baa ba ba ba Bing and Ziggy Stardust came together this one time, and made a lovely song sung in a two part harmony that has well out lived Bing, and may one day outlive Bowie as well. Here below is "Little Drummer Boy / Peace on Earth."
