If you prefer your holiday music to be up-tempo, I recommend “Kool For The Holidays.” It’s a 2013 Christmas album by Kool & The Gang, and it’s got everything: dance tunes, slow jams, R&B pop, gospel, jazz, it’s all there. And who knows more about celebrations than Kool & The Gang?

“Home For The Holidays” is the opening track and people much cooler than me would call it a banger. Enjoy.
