Underrated Christmas Songs, Day 18: Johnny Gill, “Give Love On Christmas Day”


Every year at Soul In Stereo, we spent 25 days featuring our favorite holiday songs. But this year, we’re featuring the 25 most underrated Christmas songs — those songs that bring back wonderful memories, yet few people seem to know them. Let’s give those songs the shine they deserve.

We all know this song, probably most famously performed by the Jackson 5. But Johnny’s interpretation rivals even that one, replacing youthful exuberance with smoky soul. It works very, very well.
