Someday At Christmas

Album: Someday At Christmas (1967)
  • This was written by Motown songwriters Ron Miller and Bryan Wells, the team that also wrote Wonder's songs "A Place in the Sun" and "Yester-me, Yester-you, Yesterday." They wrote it for Wonder's Christmas album, which contained several Christmas standards mixed with some new songs.
  • This is one of the first Christmas songs with a social and political message. Released during the Vietnam War, it takes a stand for peace and for equality and compassion. John Lennon sent a similar message in his 1971 song "Happy Xmas (War Is Over)." >>
