Okay, so I am not the most sentimental of all people. However, this duet of little drummer boy by Bing Crosby and David Bowie will do it to me every time.

I actually get teary eyed and stuff. And it’s because of who is doing it. I mean, David Bowie and Bing Crosby? (or the other one is Pavarotti and Sting with “panis angelicus”)

It’s the whole “two worlds” working together thing, as well as the message of peace overlaying the somewhat militaristic feeling of “little drummer boy.”

Because it makes me thing of how people can lay aside egos and prejudices, and narrow images of the world at least for a moment and make something beautiful.
