Soul Christmas Rewind

From my Christmas 2007 post:

This is the time of the year that we celebrate the birth of Christ. Some say that Christmas has become too commercialized and that too many have taken Christ out of Christmas. I would never do that. Christmas is also a time for family and friends to celebrate life with one another.

If you need to smile just imagine Don Cornelius announcing Christmas with love, peace, and SOOOOUUUL!

Here is my top 15 list

  3. Santa Clause is A Black Man - John Waters (Kimmy)

  5. Merry Christmas Baby - Otis Redding

  6. Give Love on Christmas - The Jackson 5

I love those songs! It reminds me of my childhood too. My daddy loved music and I remembered listening to some of those songs while sitting in the back seat of his Delta 88.

Thanks for posting them. I haven't taken the time to listen to the radio this season.
