    So we can actually pinpoint the date and time his Christmas hate began! I remember seeing that too. So now that I’ve severely dated myself,I’m telling you that as weird as that team-up was,by cracky,it was awesome! It’s on YouTube,check it out!

    Agree. One of the best odd-couple pairings I’ve ever seen!

    I remember that – it was mesmerizing and moving. I still like to hear it at Christmas-time.

    The song that was planned for that show was scrapped when David Bowie refused to sing it. One of the writers quickly hammered out a medley of “Little Drummer Boy” and “Peace on Earth” and the song was performed live without rehearsal. Shows the talent in both performers that they could pull off a great performance “on the fly”.

    Oh it was fabulous. when I saw it I realized Bing wasn’t so bad after all, and Bowie so great.

    tr.phipps what was the scrapped song?

    I hope we find out tomorrow why that particular musical pairing traumatized poor Mr. Grumbine and made him start hating Christmas. Just because Bing and Bowie made such an unlikely pair?

    And Zack replies, “Who’s David Bowie?”

    The scrapped song was actually “Little Drummer Boy”. Bowie hated it and wouldn’t do it, so the “Peace on Earth” was written very quickly as a counterpoint for Bowie to sing.

    It wasn’t quite done with no rehearsal, but there was less than an hour’s rehearsal before they made a pretty nice recording as one of the oddest duets in music history.
