'The Little Drummer Boy' by The Harry Simeone Chorale, has been a Hit in the USA Top 100 on several
occasions, starting in 1958. It was also a UK Hit in 1958. It was originally a 1941 Song called 'The Carol
Of The Drum'. I think that the Harry Simeone version is one of the most beautiful Christmas Songs ever.
Many Acts have covered it over the Decades, including Boney M, for their 1981 Christmas Album. It is
about Jesus as a new born baby, in the stable. I'm not a Christian. I like anything that is beautiful, no
matter what its inspiration is. it is about a little Boy, who goes to see the baby. He is poor and has
only his drum. So, he plays his drum for Jesus, as his gift to him. Then Jesus smiles at the Boy - to
show him that he likes his drum playing. That means everything to the Little Drummer Boy. What
is wrong with such a story and sentiment? Nothing at all - it is charming.
