Have yourself a funky little Christmas
We all love a good Christmas carol, standing out in the snow with our greatcoats and scarves on singing God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen, but sometimes you want something that gets the head nodding. Time for the funkiest Christmas songs.
Yes, you can’t beat blasting out a bit of Slade or, perhaps less often, Mel & Kim’s Rockin Around The Christmas Tree, but sometimes you just want some funky classic cuts to go with the mulled wine and mince pies.
Have yourselves a funky Christmas y’all!
Electric Jungle – Funky Funky Christmas
Yes, Electric Jungle. It most certainly is.
The Jive Turkeys – Get Down Santa
When you want your funk stuffed with Christmas song motif sage and onion Paxo, the Jive Turkeys don’t disappoint
Binky Griptite – Stone Soul Christmas
Let’s slow yule all down now with this choice cut from the always superb Daptone Records
The Soul Saints – Santa’s Got a Bag of Soul
With this supremely funky three minutes from the Soul Saints, it appears Santa most certainly does.
Milly & Silly – Getting Down For Xmas
Okay, so it’s a funk instrumental with some sleigh bells sprinkled on the top, but just dang; that bassline…
Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings – Ain’t No Chimneys in the Projects
Another couple of minutes from Daptone, with the fantastic Sharon Jones.
Run DMC – Christmas in Hollis
No, it’s not funk, but it is funky.
Rufus Thomas – I’ll Be Your Santa Baby
Funky. Yes. That is all.
James Brown – Soulful Christmas
Did you think we’d have a selection of festive funk without some JB in there? The only problem is picking just one. We chose this.
