In the great tradition of James Brown's "Santa Claus Go Straight to the Ghetto," the Emotions' "Black Christmas" and Brook Benton's "Soul Santa," Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings express a soulful yuletide spirit from an urban, African-American point of view. "Ain't No Chimneys in the Project" is a contemporary Christmas classic.

Song of the Day: 'Get Found' by Qiet

Qiet is one vowel short of being a misnomer, as the shape-shifting, Huntington, W.Va.-based big band (as in one never knows how many members it will have at any musical moment) slams together everything from gypsy jazz to indie pop to wild rock to soul and funk. The latter gets fully amped-up on the new track "Get Found."

Song of the Day: 'Los Angeles' by Memoir

Los Angeles isn't just a city; it's an idea. It's ground zero for fantasy and failing, "the end of the world" as one writer put it. The band Memoir channels those themes into a contemporary soul-pop sound that has "learned to fly" beyond the city of angels.

"Ain't nothing like the real thing," Marvin Gaye once sang, and the real thing, in terms of soul and musicianship, is just what went down at Off Broadway for the KDHX event "How Sweet It Is: A Tribute to Marvin Gaye."

'Let's Get It On': Top 10 Marvin Gaye songs
