Song: Every Day Will Be Like a Holiday
Album: The Original Soul Christmas
Performer: William Bell
Writer: William Bell, Booker T. Jones
Year: 1968 (song release), 1995 (album release)

This album is full of the best soul artists and their renditions of Christmas classics. This particular selection is an original song by William Bell with instrumental arrangements by Booker T. Jones. I’m not usually a fan of artists writing their own Christmas songs, but this one definitely works. You just can’t go wrong with good soul vocals and impeccable horn arrangements from such a huge name in soul music.
