“The Christmas Song” Performed By Smokey Robinson & The Temptations (1987)

December 22, 2009

Smokey has sung lead on this tune with The Miracles and you have heard a few versions of the Temptations take on this classic.

But this has got to be the smoothest  Motown rendition of this classic holiday tune yet!  With Smokey AND Dennis Edwards, Melvin Franklin and the rest of the Temptations  gang giving it there all — well how can you go wrong?!

This audio (provided in case the YouTube cClip vanishes) is from my latest Motown Holiday Collection (yes, I had to purchase yet another one but I had a good reason). And of  course it is the audio from the classic 1987 Motown Merry Christmas TV Special of 1987.

I feel very fortunate to have found this clip on YouTube,  but does anyone know if this show is available on DVD please?

Watching this clip makes you feel all warm and fuzzy doesn’t it?

Musically Yours,
