One of most moving 'serious' Christmas carols ever with the theme of a person who has nothing and no one in this world giving a stranger the one thing he could (the drum playing) to make another person happy and how that very act revives the protagonist's empty soul ! Many believe the 1968 Rankin-Bass depiction with Greer Garson's stirring narration and the Vienna Boys Choir downright haunting rendition of the song -complete with a moving background story for the protagonist does it great justice but other versions are noteworthy (e.g. Bob Seger's version which hints at the idea that somehow the orphan survived to adulthood to tell what was still the turning point of his life). Could this song have possibly boned the fish? While many of us don't think so, this site is here for those who may want to argue otherwise!

1 I liked it but havent seen the Rankin/Bass 1968 special which came out the same year as the Chambers Bros song ParkerTillman correctly cites for years -- Submitted By: (PokeyJHorse) on May 8, 2016, 1:21 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Never liked this song. The Christmas special was passable when I was a kid, but doesn't get repeated much, probably because it had no staying power, and I'd probably see that now if it was rerun. However, the all time low point that made this song BTF for me is seeing / hearing that lamely done Bing Crosby / David Bowie duet from the late 1970s. Gag me with a friggin' chain saw on that one! Bing sounds like Don Imus is trying to sing it. Bowie does a decent job, but it's still lipstick on a pig. However, I did also consider voting that it "boned back" when a guitar distortion riff in The Chambers Brothers' song "Time Has Come Today" (LP version) sampled it. Few people notice that, and it's kinda cool, but it long pre-dates, and is well offset, by the Crosby / Bowie atrocity. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 27, 2012, 11:14 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
