Bowie and Bing. Christmas. What more needs to be said?

Consider this making up for the last Christmas video.

Simply awesome.

    I think this is the first time I’ve seen this. I’ve heard it many times, but seen it? Uh,uh.

    One of only two versions of that song I can actually stand (the other is the version they used in the first season Christmas episode of “The West Wing”, and that one because it was an instrumental and it fit the circumstances of the episode). The blend of Crosby’s baritone and Bowie’s tenor and the combination of what were really two songs is both effortless and magical.

    I remember watching Bowie and Bing when it was first shown and thinking, “Well, there’s something you don’t see everyday!”

    A classic.

    And who knew Billy Idol could sneer and smile at the same time? : D
