New Edition, which was recently honored with a lifetime achievement award by the Soul Train Awards, found success with hits like “Cool It Now” and “Candy Girl” in the ’90s, but the Boston boy band also found time to record a holiday album titled “Christmas All Over the World.” Tracks on the 1995 CD include “All I Want for Christmas is My Girl” and “Give Love on Christmas Day.” We found a video from 1985 of the group on the show “Solid Gold” performing a track called “It’s Christmas All Over the World”.
Sample of “It’s Christmas All Over the World”:
“When Santa’s flyin’ in his magic sleigh,
Goes all around the world in just a day,
From the North Pole to the southern tip,
He makes his trip with love to give away
