Stevie Wonder had a record-breaking year in 1984 thanks to the song I Just Called To Say I Love You from this soundtrack. The song won an Academy Award, went to number one on charts around the world, and became Motown’s all time biggest-selling single internationally. The soundtrack album, containing other songs from Wonder and featuring Dionne Warwick, sold a million copies in the US and was certified gold or platinum in several other countries. This wasn’t Wonder’s first foray into movie music: he had previously recorded the soundtrack to the documentary The Secret Life Of Plants in 1979.

This assortment of seasonal cheer features Stevie Wonder applying his inimitable vocal technique to familiar and unusual Yuletide songs, with predictably successful results. In “Someday at Christmas” he yearns for a Christmas when “Men won’t be boys/playing with bombs like kids play with toys”–this album was recorded during the Vietnam War–striking a plaintive tone not often found on Christmas albums. Other high points include his joyous reading of “Little Drummer Boy,” with its steadily building martial beat, and chestnuts like “Silver Bells” and “The Christmas Song,” which Wonder delivers with total assurance, as well as a palpable sense of fun. He even brings a measure of soul to more sentimental numbers like “One Little Christmas Tree” and “Twinkle Twinkle Little Me,” while “What Christmas Means to Me” invokes the bubbling bass line of the Capitols’ “Cool Jerk,” and features a blissful harp solo.

The LP features the hit single “A Place in the Sun”. Another single, “Hey Love”, became a hit for Detroit soul singer Betty Lavette the following year.
