[With R&B veteran Darlene Love set to take over B.B. King Blues Club & Grill tonight (December 23) in New York City, SOHH’s compiled the top five Christmas songs we gotta hear her perform. Peep ’em below!]
1. Jingle Bells
It’s no fun, unless Darlene Love and the crowd has some. Sure, “Jingle Bells” might seem silly, but is there really any other song which makes you feel like it’s Christmas? Nothing wrong with warming things up with a little high tempo.
2. 8 Days Of Christmas
While we’re only 48 hours away from X-Mas going down, there’s nothing wrong with adding on a few extra to start this big countdown.
3. This Christmas
With the star power and veteranship Darlene Love brings to her performances, it would only be right to hear her sing it up with “This Christmas.” Such a slowed down and R&B-feeling tune which screams out X-Mas – literally. Gotta hear this.
4. Let It Snow
While we might not really want it to in New York, there’s nothing wrong with singing about letting the snow come down. Darlene Love should kill with this holiday hit.
5. Christmas Time Is Here
Okay, so this may be a stretch but why not? Charlie Brown and this classic “Christmas Time Is Here” song is a must-hear. If there’s only one wish Darlene Love could grant, it’d be for her to treat us to this!
