Top 10 Versions of Sleigh Ride
Sleigh Ride is the best secular Christmas song out there. It's so good that I have more than versions of it in iTunes. Here are my Top 10:
- 12.Bing CrosbyPretty traditional version. I like Bing's backup singers.
- 11.Ella FitgeraldAgain, very traditional, but who doesn't love Ella?
- 10.Jack Livingston BandI'm a sucker for big band music.
- 9.She & HimI was so stoked when She & Him put out a Christmas album.
- 8.Herb Alpert and the Tijuana BrassIt's a slow start before hitting the typical Herb Alpert stride. Trumpet love!
- 7.Squirrel Nut ZippersMore brassy instrumentals! I love the New Orleans feel of this one.
- 6.Brian Setzer OrchestraMore sizzling horn parts. This whole album is great.
- 5.The VenturesThat's right, the band who recorded the Hawaii 5-0 theme song.
- 4.The RonettesThe quintessential version for Christmas movies and tv episodes. Who doesn't love the Phil Spector Wall of Sound?
- 3.Harry Connick, Jr.This album has always been one of my family's favorites.
- 2.Barenaked LadiesThe vocals on this always crack me up. Every single time.
- 1.Boston Pops OrchestraNothing beats the original. It's the most perfect and pure version of the best Christmas song.
