Now this is a surprise. After falling behind early, The Temptations pulled ahead of the pack and put the smack down on The Jackson 5, Nat King Cole, and even Donny Hathaway in our last Soul-Poll of 2007. Over half of the poll voters chose "Silent Night" as their favorite Classic Soul Christmas song, and even though there are a lot of Hathaway fans scratching their heads right now, you really can't be mad at this result. The Temps sang the definitive version of "Silent Night," and on this Christmas Eve it's the perfect song to listen to. Wouldn't you agree?
The Temptations: "Silent Night"
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, everyone! Come back in 2008 when we'll have a lot more Soul-Poll fun.
