The Little Drummer Boy (originally known as Carol of the Drum) is a popular Christmas song written by the American classical music composer and teacher Katherine Kennicott Davis in 1941. It was recorded in 1955 by the Trapp Family Singers and further popularized by a 1958 recording by the Harry Simeone Chorale. That version was re-released successfully for several years and the song has been recorded many times since.
Jimi Hendrix recorded a cover of the song in 1969. This was later included on his 1999 holiday EP, 'Merry Christmas & Happy New Year'. It was this that inspired T.A.R. and mini cine to create their version for bLOGOS/HA HA
In the lyrics, The Little Drummer Boy tells how, as a poor young boy, he was summoned by the Magi to the nativity where, without a gift for the infant Jesus, he played his drum (and Jimi played his guitar) with the Virgin Mary's approval. He recalls, "I played my best for Him" and "He smiled at me". (With thanks to Wikipedia)
