This Day in Pop Culture for September 11


May We Never Forget
Although many years have gone by since this horrible day in world history, it still feels like it happened yesterday. On this day in 2001, America was the target of four coordinated terrorist attacks led by the Islamic group al-Qaeda. Four airplanes bound for California were hijacked at the same time by the terrorists with the goal of crashing them into different U.S. landmarks. Two crashed into the World Trade Center twin towers, and just an hour and a half later, they collapsed. A third plane crashed into the Pentagon in Arlington County, Virginia. The attackers plan for the fourth plane was thwarted when some of the passengers took down the attackers causing the plane to crash into a field instead of Washington D.C. 2,996 people lost their lives that day.


Bing Crosby and David Bowie Record Together
One of the oddest pairings in music history began on this day in 1977. David Bowie agreed to appear on Bing Crosby’s Christmas special. It is not clear if either star knew who the other was. The plan was to have the two chat about their family Christmas celebrations and then sing “The Little Drummer Boy,” but Bowie said that he hated that song and asked if he could sing something else. Ian Fraser, Larry Grossman, and Alan Kohan wrote “Peace on Earth” on the spot as a counterpoint and the pair recorded the song within an hour. Crosby died only weeks later never to know how popular the song had become.
