Hello, Vixens!!! Welcome back to the countdown.

My love for Motown is immense. I have adored it since I was a kid, thanks to my parents. They bought one of those K-Tel compilations which consisted of four albums of the Motor City’s greatest hits and the rest is history.
So many great songs and singers came out of that era, and to this day four of them are still on my list of favorite voices of all time: Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, David Ruffin (lead singer of the Temptations) & Levi Stubbs (lead singer of the Four Tops.
Despite the fact that Motown gave us some of the greatest music ever made, so many of the holiday music recorded by those artists is hardly ever heard during the Christmas season. With radio stations starting earlier and earlier every year to play holiday songs, I do not know how this era of music gets overlooked. I listen to these four Christmas songs year round, and maybe after hearing them you will understand why.
Marvin Gaye (R) – The Temptations (L) (original sources unknown)
Stevie Wonder (R) – The Four Tops (L) (original sources unknown)
Marvin Gaye: “I Want To Come Home For Christmas“
Stevie Wonder: “What Christmas Means to Me“
The Four Tops: “Away In A Manger“
The Temptations: “Silent Night”
I do not own the rights to anything. I am just sharing some things that I love with you 🙂
What are some of your favorite Christmas songs?
Until next time, fellow Vixens, happy listening!!!
