Music For The Motown Snowman (Merry Christmas!!)
Merry Christmas to you all, and I hope you all have had a wonderful Christmas with your families. I just stumbled across this Motown Christmas House mix, and I wanted to share it with you all. Peep the full breakdown after the jump!
What would happen if your favorite Motown artists–say, Stevie Wonder, The Supremes, Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, Diana Ross, and The Temptations–got together to sing House Music Christmas carols? If the most soulful singers of the 20th century teamed up with Danny Dance, one of the newest, most soulful House Music producers of the 21st?
Music For the Motown Snowman. Or Danny Dance Goes To Motown For Christmas. Or whatever else you want to call it–but it’s good. It’s free. And it’s here: a super special Christmas, Channukah, Kwanza, or end-of-year present for friends of Dance Is A Feeling.
This album is dedicated to everyone anywhere in the world searching for a small moment of pure dancing joy. From gleefully mellow classics like Stevie Wonder’s “Ave Maria” to upbeat favorites like “My Favorite Things” by The Supremes and The Temptations’ “My Christmas Tree”; from the surprisingly groovy (“God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” by Smokey Robinson & The Miracles) to the sexy (“Christmas In The City” by Marvin Gaye); and from the beautiful (“One Little Christmas Tree” by Stevie Wonder and “This Christmas” by Diana Ross) to the thought-provoking (Marvin Gaye’s “I Want To Come Home For Christmas”), this concept album by young producer Danny Dance packs enough music thrills, dancing mojo, and flavors of House Music for long after this Christmas.
