Friday Dance Party: Christmas Eve Edition

I'm heading to the North Carolina mountains for what looks to be a white Christmas, so this week's Dance Party is a mercifully short one. Don't get used to it. Here are a couple of my favorite Christmas clips, both of which I originally saw as a kid, growing up in Atlanta. This first clip is so classy and underplayed, that it is hard to believe a TV network presented it. These days, it would be all jazzed up with an announcer blaring about a Very Special Episode of Something or Other. But several years in a row, whenever I saw this clip, I truly felt in the Christmas spirit.

Here are four underrated musicians who appeared on the Dance Party quite a while ago. This clip should have put to rest any doubts that they were, in fact, musicians:

Merry Christmas, everybody!
