Song Of The Week: Little Drummer Boy

I'm back from a wonderfully relaxing holiday vacation and overjoyed at the abundance of holiday music that is filling my ears (minus "Christmas Shoes" which was the VERY first X-mas song I heard this season  - trying to block that out).

I love all the pop holiday tunes but every once in a while really enjoy a classical holiday tune that includes a choir.  My favorite holiday tune with a choir has to be Harry Simeone Chorale's "Little Drummer Boy".  I love the beautiful voices behind it and singing along to the "pa rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum".

If you are starting to compile your holiday party mixed tape, you most definitely should include this beauty.  It may be on the slower side but will surely please all your guests.

Anyone else so excited about the return of holiday music?

NO ONE likes Christmas Shoes - why do they insist on playing it?! I love the Little Drummer Boy - It always makes me cry...which is why I'll listen to this version when I get home from work rather than look like an idiot at my desk.
