September 11, 1977

On this day in 1977, David Bowie appeared on Bing Crosby’s Merrie Olde Christmas special. Bowie refused to sing “Little Drummer Boy” with Crosby, so his part was rewritten as “Peace On Earth.” Crosby died a month later, and the duet became a Christmas classic, growing even more popular when MTV started playing the clip a few years later.

With Bowie’s passing in 2016, we are now bound to have this pumped into our ears at the mall this Christmas season.
