12 Days of Christmas (Songs) - Day 9: An Awkward Classic
The 12 Days of Christmas: A hidden catechesis for Catholics while they endured persecution in England (1558-1829). You can read more about it here. This year I will be posting a Christmas song for each day.
Day 9: Nine Ladies Dancing
The nine fruits of the Holy Ghost are for us to consider: Charity, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Generosity, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self-Control.
Let's see, we have entered a new year, and we're still hanging on to Christmas. Sounds like a good time for a combo-song. Bing Crosby and David Bowie: The Little Drummer Boy (Peace on Earth).
This song is bizarre. The story behind it is awkward, to say the least. We have a punk singing with Bing Crosby. Both of them are uncomfortable. And yet... somehow, someway, it works.
As you know, Bing died a month later of a heart attack. Bowie died recently. And we're still searching for that Peace on Earth.
