I’m old enough to remember seeing Bing Crosby’s Merrie Olde Christmas in 1977 in which David Bowie dropped in to borrow the piano and perform a duet of Little Drummer Boy.

It’s very cheesy but kinda cool too.

I’m struggling to enter into the Christmas spirit this year, so this helps to melt the ‘bah! humbug!’ feelings a little.

A sad footnote is that Crosby died five weeks after recording the show.
