Ultimate Christmas Playlist Day 8: James Brown, ‘Santa Claus Goes Straight To The Ghetto’

funky christmas

What’s Christmas without classic music? This year we’re celebrating the holidays by letting our readers curate the Ultimate Christmas Playlist. Each day we’ll add one new song to our Spotify playlist on our way to Christmas Day. And I know you wanna add your favorite song, right?

Leave your selections on the comments of this post, at our Soul In Stereo Cypher Facebook page, hit me up on Twitter @etbowser, or email us at soulinstereoblog@gmail.com. Simply name your song and give us a sentence or so telling us why you love it. 

Ronald Grant comes with classic commentary on urban life.

“James Brown’s  ‘Santa Goes Straight to the Ghetto.’ But with this one, JB just turns the Christmas song on its head. He made it so that hood kids could have a holiday song to sing!”
