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.
William Bell rarely gets mentioned among the great crooners of his day. But it’s Christmas, the one time of year he gets his just due. Bell’s aching harmonies are a perfect fit for this song; he sounds like he’s staring a hole through his front door, just waiting for his woman to walk in. It’s a sincerity that’s often lost in today’s music, and the type of emotion that makes this one a lost classic.
