You don't need to be resting under a coconut tree while sipping a Pina Colada to appreciate chilled out reggae versions of lots of Christmas classics. It would probably help but then we like to deal in reality around Yuleplay's snow covered towers! So while your windows frost up and your door won't budge for excessive snow why not curl up beside the open fire while Bob Marley laces Bing's 'White Christmas' with thoughtfully positioned artificial frosted flakes of ska. It might not be to everyone's taste but then isn’t it all the more reassuring that the season is still revered in hotter climes like Jamaica.
The great joy of this playlist of reggae Christmas songs is the fact that you'll recognise each and every song. The crucial point however is that each has been given a tropical beat and a hazy dose of bountiful good times. 'Santa Claus Is Coming To Town' is a case in point where the man in red has no choice but to substitute snow covered rooftops for reggae bars that are open roofed and staring out at the warm balmy sky. 80's singer Boris Gardiner also gets in on the relaxed action with his 'The Meaning of Christmas' which came out over Christmas 1986, the very same year that saw the singer release his worldwide hit 'I Wanna Wake Up With You'. These reggae Christmas songs should be enough to have you snoozing merrily over the holidays.
