Donny Hathaway - This Christmas

This song has become a beloved holiday classic and would be covered by many since his passing.

NOTE: Just post covers of This Christmas and nothing else

I would favor a constitutional amendment banning cover versions of this song, because like Stevie's "What Christmas Means To Me," it is a perfect Christmas original.

There's a strong argument for banning some versions of Christmas favourites even in cases where no perfect original exists.



See also my long-fought battle to ban the festive works of Cliff Richard. And indeed the non-festive works of Cliff Richard. And indeed Cliff Richard altogether. banned

I admit though, I can enjoy that Cliff Richard song where Stevie Wonder did all the writing, music and production. quite nice cool

Vanglorious... this is protected by the red, the black, and the green. With a key... sissy!

But, yeah, he also puts in a guest turn on Lamont Dozier's latest album, which is not too offensive to the senses. Maybe my standards are slipping. hmmm
