Funky Christmas playlist

I looove Christmas carols and will listen to them with gusto for the entire month of December. However, I do sometimes prefer a funkier version of the classic songs. My absolute favourite of all times is Lou Rawls' "Christmas is the time". Very Soul and R&B.

Following is a list which will hopefully inspire you to put together your own jazzy Christmas Carol list.
