Day 18 -- James Brown, "Soulful Christmas"

James Brown -- "Soulful Christmas'

James Brown informs us all that people like us don't grow on trees. Also, he thanks us for buying his records and coming to see his show. Also, sometimes it sounds like he is talking to his lady, but it is never quite sure when he switches. But, he loves you!

Also, he gets this feeling, every now and then, he's gotta ring the New Year in. Every now and then? You mean, like, at New Year's, James?

Steve's X-Mas-Factor Rating-O-Matic

Jingle-Jangle Annoyingness Factor (scientific measurement of things like the use of kazoos, animal sounds, or Karen Carpenter, and/or time spent discussing elves)

10 (out of 10) -- Like James Brown could be annoying.

Where's That Gift Receipt? Factor (rates whether one would actually listen to this song again)

10 (out of 10) -- It's like a sweet melody.

That's the Spirit Factor (rates how much the song actually has to do with Christmas)

6 (out of 10) -- Haha -- once again, not really!

Total Score: 8
Christmas Present Equivalent: Led Zeppelin boxed set.

Remember -- James Brown loves you, you lucky so-and-so.
