Trivia

The duet between Bing Crosby and David Bowie where Bing sings "The Little Drummer Boy" and David sings "Peace on Earth" has become a standard on radio stations at Christmastime. David Bowie performed on the Bing Crosby Christmas special because he was trying to normalize his career and because his mother liked Bing Crosby. Since he didn't want to sing "The Little Drummer Boy," his song was specially written for him by Ian Fraser, Larry Grossman and Buz Kohan. RCA later released the soundtrack on a single in 1982.
