Song of the Week: "This Christmas"

SamuraiFrog's Essential Christmas Songs #24. Diana Ross recorded this cover of the Donny Hathaway song in 1974, but it went criminally unreleased until 1993. I have no idea why we were deprived of this for two decades, but it really sets the mood for the holiday season. I dig Motown Christmas music. Did you see that there was a recent poll where people picked the 80s as the best decade for Christmas music? That... is insane.

I love the original, but this is nice, once it goes uptempo. I have LOTS of Motown Christmas, Temps, J5, Stevie, plus a 2 LP Motown compilation.
