Fancy a bit of class on the stereo this Christmas? Well, you’ve come to the right place as this playlist contains some of the best soul artists effortlessly making their way through a velvet collection of Christmas songs. What makes the songs even more special is that they are not your usual mix of covers taken from the well-worn canon of Christmas songs. There are so many unheralded gems to fall in love with we are going to bet that you’ll make plenty of return trips. Stevie Wonder’s ‘Everyone's A Kid At Christmas Time’ is a case in point, a wonderful original recording that is flush with sassy production values. Hard to believe then that the song didn’t even make the cut for Wonder’s 1967 ‘Someday at Christmas’ album and that it only surfaced many years later on a retrospective collection. As you’d expect Smokey Robinson & The Miracles create their very own brand of magic on ‘I Believe In Christmas Eve’ which was a Smokey original. Taken from their 1970 Christmas album ‘Season For Miracles’ it has the swagger and ingenuity to sound just as incandescent at any time of the year. Just as special and about the most perfect way to close any Christmas playlist is Aretha Franklin’s soulful ‘Kissin’ By The Mistletoe’ which appeared on the All-Star Christmas album ‘We Wish You The Merriest’ in 1961 wherein Aretha shared the limelight with the likes of Doris Day and Johnny Cash.
