This Christmas

December 12, 2011

When I first heard this song, it was as a Vonda Shepard cover on the Ally McBeal Christmas album. For real! (What? You did not know that such a thing existed? Worth the price of admission for Robert Downey Jr.’s rendition of “River,” if nothing else. Maybe I’ll have to add that here one of these days…)

Anyway, “This Christmas.” Man, it just doesn’t get much better than this. And no disrespect to Ms. Shepard or Ms. Aguilera or any of you other peeps who have done your own thing with this song, but when Donny Hathaway lays it down, seems to me that’s all that really needs to be said on the matter, isn’t it?

Pure soulful Christmas bliss :-)
