Playlist: 97 Minutes of Christmas, Vol. 3

Jordan Listenbee | December 12, 2021

This Christmas season, the staff of THE 97 will be sharing their favorite holiday songs via our new 97 Minutes of Christmas Playlist series. Each playlist contains 1 hour and 37~ minutes of Christmas jams personally curated by the staff writer.


To me, Christmas is all about soul. It’s about the love of family, food, and togetherness. In my family, the thing that fully bonds us together, is music. Whether it’s a blues song, something on the R&B tip, classic Motown, or a hymnal, this playlist encapsulates many things.

This playlist is a showcase of the old, and new. A connection from our ancestors, to the present day. This curation features many of the artists that not only shaped my own musical journey, but the world’s. Most importantly, this is a deep expression of the soul that makes Christmas so meaningful to me. Finely dipped in chocolate, with flecks of gold, red, and green.

Simply put: this is a playlist of love. I hope you enjoy, from my family, to yours.
