Since it's almost Christmas time, I think we should pour the eggnog and rum, grab a plate of sugar cookies, throw on a yule log, and watch this little gem from years gone by.
This footage for the tv special "Bing Crosby's Merrie Olde Christmas" was recorded on September 11, 1977. Bing Crosby died October 14, 1977. The tv special aired after his death on November 30, 1977. Here's a little article I found about Bing meeting Bowie and how this song came about.
"It's a pretty thing, isn't it?"-Bing Crosby
And then, as a gift to me, I am posting the other song Bowie sang that night, Heroes. Only watch if you want to, but this is rare footage and there are some nice mime moves.
Peace on Earth - song: Peace on Earth, artist: David Bowie, show: Bing Crosby's Merrie Olde Christmas
