Throwback Thursday – Video Hits Christmas

Growing up we never had much more than your basic cable package, which meant for a long time I didn’t even have access to MuchMusic and the only way I got to watch music videos was through a TV show on the CBC called Video Hits.


Once a year, as we got closer to Christmas they would dedicate one episode to Christmas videos. Their video choices for this episode always surprised me as some of the clips weren’t even ‘official’ music videos but just clips from holiday specials. For December’s “Throughback Thursday” I decided I’d revisit some of the old videos I saw on the show.

One ‘video’ that got shown every year was Bing Crosby and David Bowie’s rendition of “Little Drummer Boy”…does anyone know, was this the actual video or was this part of some holiday special?
