“In my mind…I want you to be free…for all of my friends…I want you to listen to me…now hear what I say… We wish you a merry Christmas. To eeeeeeach one of you…Silent Night. Holy night. All is come. All is bright. Proud young virgin. Mother & child. Holy infant so tender & mild. Sleep in heavenly peeeeace. Sle-ep in heavenly peace”
As soon as the first chords come on I get hyped. One of my all time favorite Christmas songs. The Temptations made a few great holiday songs, but this is the one. Silent Night. The best & most soulful rendition there is. It doesn’t get much better.
Not only is it great to listen to, but it’s a great sing-a-long song as well. It always takes me back to the beginning of one of my favorite Christmas movies, Friday After Next. It’s one of the best things about the holidays to me. Give me a Christmas tree, some eggnog & this song & I’m full of holiday cheer.
The song is included below. Listen & get into the spirit:
