AccuRadio Song Of The Day-CeeLo Green
Album:CeeLo's Magic Moment
It seems like everyone releases a Christmas album and they record a lot of the same songs. So which ones are worth listening to? It seems that neo soul singer songwriter CeeLo Green has wanted to record a Christmas album since his early days with Goodie Mob and he finally got the chance to do it in 2012. He didn't waste any time after the success of the single F**k You. He had previously appeared on a Christmas album by Straight No Chaser. So it's not surprising that they appear on his album. Other guests include Christina Aguilera, Rod Stewart and Trombone Shorty and The Muppets. There was also a TV special that aired on Warner Music's Youtube channel. With the exception of All I Need Is Love which features The Muppets, all the songs are Christmas standards. Some of these songs are recorded too frequently. I like Green's recording of Donny Hathaway's This Christmas which is one of the few Christmas songs that hasn't been over recorded. The CD did well on the charts when it was first released in 2012. And it is now available as a budget CD. So if you're a fan of Green or a neo soul fan, it's worth checking out for your Christmas listening. Here's the video for This Christmas by CeeLo Green.
