A Very Special Christmas

Tis the season to be jolly, merry, happy etc. And there's nothing like some good music to set the tone for great feelings and emotions. Christmas is a few days away and I remember some twenty years ago, maybe more, I discovered an album which to this date is my favorite album for the season - A Very Special Christmas Vol. 1  (Various Artists)

I listened to this album even when it wasn't Christmas time LOL. Fifteen great songs for the season from hip hop to classic ballads. The album features artists such as Whitney Huston, Madonna, Bruce Springsteen, U2, The Pointer Sisters and a slew of other great artists. I particularly loved Run-DMC's track "Christmas In Hollis", classic hip hop on an Xmas tune - GOOD STUFF!

 "A Very Special Christmas Vol. 1" was the first in a series of Christmas-themed compilation albums produced to benefit the Special Olympics for which it raised millions of dollars.

If you like classic Christmas songs mixed with hip hop and other popular styles/genres from the late 80's this is another great album for you to check out in my opinion.

Here's Run DMC's song "Christmas In Hollis"

Have A Merry Christmas Everyone!!!!
