Me and my drum...

Countdown to Christmas 23 days

Did you know that there are over 220 different versions of The Little Drummer Boy?

I have 44 of them.

Alvin & the Chipmunks
Andy Williams
Anne Murray
Anthony Rapp & Everett Bradley
Beck (the Little Drum Machine)
Bing Crosby & David Bowie (Peace On Earth/Little Drummer Boy)
Brenda Lee
Burl Ives
The Dandy Warhols
Diana Ross & The Supremes
Dolly Parton
Frank Sinatra
Harry Connick Jr
Harry Simeone Choral - The one you know and love.
Henry Mancini
Jack Latnier (L'Enfant Au Tambour)
The Jackson 5
Jars Of Clay
Jessica Simpson & Ashlee Simpson
Joan Jett + The Blackhearts - If you're going to re-do a classic, this is the way to do it.
John Denver
John Williams & The Boston Pops Orchestra
Johnny Cash - One of my least favorite versions. He cheats you out of many par-um-pa-ba-bums.
Johnny Mathis
Lena Horne
Lennon Sisters
Les Dragobert (L'Enfant Au Tambour)
Linda Eder
Mannheim Steamroller
Marlene Dietrich - One of my favorite versions.
Neil Diamond
Norma Luboff Choir
Peggy Lee
Percy Faith
Take 6
Tennessee Ernie Ford
Tori Amos
Vanessa Williams
The Vienna Boys Choir
Whitney Houston
98 Degrees

Before you judge me, I do not listen to every single version. But I have collected them all into one 3 hour playlist. If you push me, I will force you to listen to it. It's right there next to my "Don't Cry For Me Argentina playlist that has 18 songs and goes for an hour and half.

This was beautiful. Is Joan Jett on You Tube? I've got to hear it!
