Tis the season to have a holiday-themed Soul-Poll!
Now that the Christmas season is in full swing there’s no better time than the present to break out your Christmas albums, and in any household that loves soul music there are a few staples that you better have in heavy rotation. I’ve taken the liberty to narrow down those staples to a few classic cuts by artists such as Nat King Cole, The Temptations, The Jackson 5 and Donny Hathaway for this week’s poll. No, “Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer” is not a choice. Sorry. Maybe next year.
Listen to the quintessential soul sounds of the season and vote on your favorite after the bounce.
Donny Hathaway: “This Christmas”
The Jackson 5: “Santa Claus Is Coming To Town”
Nat King Cole: “The Christmas Song”
The Temptations: “Silent Night”
