Day Eight: What Child Is This/The Holly and the Ivy by Bing Crosby
This list wouldn’t be complete without at least one song by the wonderful Bing Crosby. Narrowing down to just one, however, was nearly impossible. As I stated in my earlier post “Breaking Out the Christmas Albums”, you just can’t have Christmas without listening to Bing Crosby crooning out the holiday classics. I finally chose What Child is This/The Holly and the Ivy mostly for the second half of the song (starting at about 2:05 minutes). I can never find a really good version of The Holly and the Ivy, but this one is phenomenal. I find myself singing this song even when it’s nowhere near Christmas. I also tend to play this song on repeat. Give this song a listen and let me know what you think!
