Capitalism is something else, playa.
Only in America will you hear Christmas music while shopping for Halloween costumes. It’s like the country can’t WAIT to slap you in the face with “Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer.”
Not in my household, homie. The Christmas season starts after the Thanksgiving meal has been put away, and not a second earlier. And since we’ve all digested all those Patti LaBelle pies and deep fried turkeys, we can now turn our attention to those songs that put us in the holiday spirit.
This year, we wanna hear what’s on your playlists.
During the month of December at Soul In Stereo, we feature 25 Christmas songs leading up to the big day. But instead of rehashing classics like Donny Hathaway’s “This Christmas,” Boyz II Men’s “Let It Snow” and The Temptation’s “Silent Night,” we’re going to highlight those underrated gems under your tree — the songs that stir warm holiday memories for you, yet aren’t constantly being played while you wander through Target.
Share your favorite underrated Christmas classics on our Facebook page, hit me up on Twitter@etbowser, email a brother at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave ’em in the comments below. We’ll feature the songs throughout the month.
Stop by Dec. 1 and help us create new Christmas memories.
