Little Drummer Boy #4

After my last slightly humorous post I thought it was time to get a bit more serious.

How many of you knew that ‘Little Drummer Boy’ was originally titled the ‘Carol of the Drum’ ?

The first official recording of this song was by the Trapp Family Singers. Yes indeedy…that Trapp family that Julie Andrews made famous in Sound of Music.

So here is their version.

You might notice that instead of “the ox and lamb kept time” the Trapp Family Singers sing “the ox and ass kept time” which was as it was originally written by Katherine Davis in 1941. There is a very interesting story about some plagiarism of this song, which I will tell you during this month of the Little Drummer Boy, once I check out that it is true.

Hope you enjoy.

Bob Seger is high up on my list of wonderful singers. I still have the records of his I bought back in the day.

So when I heard this I was thrilled. Hope you like it as much as I do.

Little Drummer Boy #1

Today I came across a version of my favourite Christmas song that made the hairs stand up all over my body…so I thought I would share it with you.

How amazing was that ??

I found myself searching for different versions of this wonderful song. So, although it is not yet December I am breaking what in the past has been a steadfast rule. No Christmas stuff until December 1.

Each day up to and including Christmas Eve I am going to search and find a cool version of this ever so wonderful song.

I figure I might take you along with me and share them with you. Hopefully you will be like me and never tire of this song.

Do you have a favourite Christmas song ?? I’d love to hear which one it is.

Or do you have a favourite version of Little Drummer Boy ?? Do tell !!!
