There’s something about the frenetic, jolly pace of “Sleigh Ride” that keeps it upbeat, no matter how mellow the genre. Here’s a brief compilation » Ella Fitzgerald, Squirrel Nut Zippers (manic!), She and Him, Reliant K, Diana Krall, and a little bit of Barenaked Ladies — all doing their version of the aforementioned song. But I promise, you won’t be bored.
Maybe it’s a latent expression of OCD, or maybe just another holiday obsession (I watch every version of Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” that I can get my hands on … ), but I’m still searching for noteworthy versions of this tune. Msg me, please!
Oh, and Merry Christmas.
