Day Four: Little Drummer Boy by Neil Diamond
The Little Drummer Boy is a well-known song to most of us, whether you hear it on the radio, out shopping for Christmas presents, or even buying food in a grocery store. There are many really good versions of this song, but my favourite is sung by Neil Diamond. The song is off his album “The Christmas Album” from 1992. I knew when I was creating this list that I wanted to include a Neil Diamond song, and narrowing it down to just one was a little difficult as I love every song on this album. However, Little Drummer Boy has always stood out to me. I really enjoying the slowness of the song as well as the use of instruments. I also really enjoy the way the song builds and slowly becomes more epic. If you’re not a fan of the Little Drummer Boy, you should still check out this album at least. I promise, you’ll enjoy it!
