David Bowie & Bing Crosby – The Artists

David Robert Jones (8 January 1947 – 10 January 2016), known professionally as David Bowie was an English singer, songwriter and actor who is often considered to be one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century. He was a leading figure in popular music and was acclaimed by critics and fellow musicians for his innovative work, particularly for his work during the 1970s. His career was marked by reinvention and visual presentation, with his music and stagecraft significantly influencing popular music. 

Harry Lillis “Bing” Crosby Jr. (1903 – 1977) was an American singer and actor. The first multimedia star, Crosby was a leader in record sales, radio ratings, and motion picture grosses from 1931 to 1954. His early career coincided with recording innovations such as the microphone. This allowed him to develop an intimate singing style that influenced many male singers who followed him, including Perry Como, Frank Sinatra, Dick Haymes, and Dean Martin.

Peace On Earth – The Song

Peace On Earth / The Little Drummer Boy is a Christmas song with an added counterpoint performed by David Bowie and Bing Crosby. “The Little Drummer Boy” is a Christmas song written in 1941, while the “Peace on Earth” tune and lyrics, written by Ian Fraser, Larry Grossman, and Alan Kohan, were added to the song specially for Bowie and Crosby’s recording. The single saw commercial success upon its release in 1982 and peaked at number three on the UK Singles Chart. The single became one of Bowie’s best selling in his career, with total estimated sales over 400,000 in the UK alone.The song has since become a Christmas classic in the United States, Canada and United Kingdom.

The Christmas Tree – The Shape

A Christmas tree is a decorated tree, usually an evergreen conifer such as spruce, pine, or fir or an artificial tree of similar appearance, associated with the celebration of Christmas. The modern Christmas tree was developed in medieval Livonia (present-day Estonia and Latvia) and early modern Germany, where Protestant Germans brought decorated trees into their homes. It acquired popularity beyond the Lutheran areas of Germany and the Baltic countries during the second half of the 19th century, at first among the upper classes.
