I'll admit I like the Luther Vandross version of "Please Come Home for Christmas" the best of all. However, there is no good film available for Luther singing this classic. The song was written by old R & B favorite, Chuck Brown, in 1960. Brown hit the charts with it in 1961, and his version stayed on the charts until 1972. The Eagles resurrected it in 1978, but then R & B players such as Vandross and Aaron Neville reclaimed it. In 1992, Jon Bon Jovi put out a cheesy video of the song, starring Cindy Crawford as his love of the holiday.
I loved Bon Jovi's version, but decided to give it to you from a 1998 video for a TV special for the Special Olympics, at the Clinton White House. Jon's a little odd in a tux, but the quality of the music is the best...and a cameo by Whoopi with long dreds capped my choice!
If you can't play the video, here is the YouTube link:
