Bing Crosby + David Bowie = genius

We were only youngsters. But we will never forget. When Bing Crosby invited the young rock star David Bowie onto his Christmas special on Sept. 11, 1977, that is the day magic truly happened by the unusual pairing.

Album of the moment: Gary Louris, Vagabonds. Set for release in February, the former Jayhawks frontman and Golden Smog member's amazing solo album is produced by Chris Robinson of The Black Crowes. The soaring backup vocals are provided by The Laurel Canyon Family Choir, which includes Susanna Hoffs of The Bangles, the ever-talented indie rocker Jenny Lewis, and even Robinson.

Not sure if the video is legit, but we think you'll enjoy it. While you're at it, go ahead and buy the album. It spins all year long on our Ipods.
