This year at Soul In Stereo, we’re spending 25 days featuring 25 of our favorite 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.

I’ll be honest, I’m not really sure what Marvin is talking about here. What makes the snowflakes purple? Are they made of weed? Eh, who cares, Marvin’s voice makes even the most bizarre lyrics melodic.

Want to add your favorite underrated Christmas songs to our monthlong playlist? Simply drop them off at soulinstereoblog@gmail.com, on our Facebook page, on Twitter @etbowser, or stop by the comments section. Merry Christmas, playas!
