I know nothing about The Dandy Warhols, but I do like this bit.
My music appreciation is at the level of about zero, but I hope that’s not the only reason I like this version.
I wish there was a rendition of the Little Drummer Boy that is utterly simple, so that when it comes time for the pah-rum-pum-pum-pum part, it is a solo on a simple drum, which would fit the words, right?
The video above doesn’t do that at all, but I think it captures more of the urgency of the need for redemption, for the birth of God-Among-Us, for the grace of God amidst all the hell of this world: While all the hell of hedonistic, violent Herod spreads its darkness, the lowly behold the glory of God. I love that.
