Peace Song for 12/1/2011: Getting The Holiday Spirit

Since it is the first day of December, we decided it was okay to insert a little holiday spirit into the mix. (We think it’s okay to be sentimental, as long as you don’t put up Christmas decorations before Thanksgiving!)

So, with the holiday spirit in mind, the Peace Song of the Day is the interwoven song, “Peace On Earth/Little Drummer Boy“. This song was created especially for a Bing Crosby TV holiday special. It is performed by Bing Crosby and David Bowie. It resonates with warmth, compassion, and a harmony between the ying and the yang.

Excerpt from the lyrics:

Come, they told me, pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
A newborn king to se, pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
Our finest gifts we bring, pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
Ra-pum-pum-pum, Ra-pum-pum-pum…
Peace on earth, can it be?
Years from now, perhaps we’ll see
See the day of glory
See the day when men of goodwill
Live in peace, live in peace again…
