Bowie Sunday - The Snowman

That David Bowie/Bing Crosby clip is pretty inescapable this time of year, but I wanted to find a different Bowie holiday clip for this Christmas Eve.

When I was a child, The Snowman was one of my favorite holiday stories. I had a book, a doll - but most importantly, a television version my mom had recorded which I watched every holiday season. The music is lovely, and the tale is kind of a heartbreaker - one of those genuine Christmas stories from the days before Hollywood got hung up on bad Dr. Seuss remakes and Santa Clause sequels. For those of you who have a similar memory, or those of you who have never seen it, here's the intro to The Snowman - featuring David Bowie. Enjoy - it's a real treat!

I've never seen the Snowman, but it looks quite charming, sort of reminds me of Little Bear or something similar.
