Der Bingle and Der Bowie
Bill Quick

I thought this was great the first time I saw it – yes, saw it. I was watching the Christmas special where this first appeared. Still do.

Crosby died just a few months after recording this. And he did look a bit peaked on the special.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. I saw it “live” too. I love Hope and Crosby, even more than Sinatra. Crosby and Christmas seem inseparably tied together.

    At the time I was really getting into Bowie too. Back then it seemed an odd pairing but somehow now it makes sense.
