The holidays are here. And if you’ve had a hard time getting into the holiday spirit like me, than you understand one of the best ways to break that is hearing Christmas music. And not just ANY Christmas music, but I’m talking about some of the classic holiday tunes.

These are the songs that no matter how little of the holiday spirit you have, these are a few R&B holiday songs that get you in the mood. These are the classics ranging from The Temptations to Boys To Men.

If you’ve already created your holiday playlist, I”m sure many of these will look familiar. However, if you haven’t put together your holiday faves, perhaps you may want to include some of these to add to your holiday theme.

These songs are ranked based on my personal opinion as well as where they stand on the R&B charts (2022).
