Christmas Duets

I blame my illness for missing out on a few Christmas posts. A few days of work and a weekend of non drinking will do that to a man. So today, instead of one duet, to make up for yesterday, I will bring you two!

My third favourite Chrismas duet, following on from Zooey Deschanel and Leon Redbone a few days past, I bring you Bing Crosbie and David Bowie

Bing Crosbie + David Bowie Peace on Earth / Little Drummer Boy

Par-um-pa-pum-pum indeed.

So onto my favourite, which is so good, Hollyoaks did an opening scene to it a few days ago (they also did one to ‘Mew – She Came Home for Christmas’), which is

The Pogues with Kirsty MacColl Fairytale of New York

AK47

nb. Note that both Bing Crosbie and Kirsty MacColl are sadly no longer with us, whilst Bowie and MacGowan are still here. Leading to both duets only having one singer currently still alive, this is one of the reasons why Elton John and Kiki Dee weren’t allowed in this post, they’re both still alive.

  1. Check out this Fairytale of New York – the misheard lyrics version. Really nicely done!

  2. This is such a great resource that you are providing and you give it away for free. I enjoy seeing websites that understand the value of providing a prime resource for free. I truly loved reading your post. Thanks!
