If you've had enough of the helter skelter of many of the classic Christmas fare then you are in dire need of a bit of classic festive R&B songs. And this playlist includes the cream of the crop from Donny Hattaway's much covered classic 'This Christmas' from 1970. As you'd expect Smokey Robinson & The Miracles is another automatic inclusion owing to their lush Christmas repertoire and 'Christmas Everyday' is a slick example of their nuanced winter catalogue. Luther Vandross was also adept at charming the season and his original 'A Kiss For Christmas' should be deemed mandatory for lovers over the holidays. The best thing about our classic R&B Christmas numbers is that it features so many famous stars of the genre singing songs that you might yet not have heard before. So with household names like the Four Tops, Marvin Gaye and Al Green you know you are all but guaranteed that their Christmas songs 'Christmas Delight', 'I Want To Come Home For Christmas' and 'Feels Like Christmas' will be smooth gems.
