Watch Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings Belt Out "Please Come Home For Christmas" On Conan
There's perhaps no other band in music more inundated with the holiday spirit than Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, and in a joyful performance on Conan, the soul ensemble delivered a brilliant rendition of "Please Come Home For Christmas." Done exclusively for the web, it featured Miss Sharon and her merry men backed up by chimes and plenty of twinkle lights.
Most importantly it just sounds flat-out amazing. Stripped back and slowed down, the deep, pleading hope of "Please Come Home For Christmas" radiates through Sharon, and she most certainly does the original 1969 Charles Brown version justice. It appears on the band's newest LP, It's A Holiday Soul Party! alongside other cuts like "White Christmas" and the Hanukkah cut "8 Days."
