Just hear those sleigh bells jingling!
This song, I like. It’s a cheery, upbeat ditty about a romp through the snow with a loved one. Or rather, technically, inviting someone on a sleigh ride. Look, don’t these horses look festive?
This song wasn’t going to be on my list at all, primarily because I have so very little to say about it; it lacks problematic elements and I don’t have much of a personal connection to talk about. But then, everything changed.
Then, I found the Reliant K video.
This is why I love Christmas songs, this spirit of utter fun and silliness. Bunny-boy can’t seem to get Bunny-girl’s attention, so his friends steal Santa’s sleigh so he can take her on a date to end all dates. How awesome is that! I think it was the giant snowman that really sold me on it, though.
If you enjoyed the previous She and Him offerings, their rendition is more of the same; I don’t think I like their style personally, though.
Meanwhile, indie-pop band fun. has released a mellow, trippy version:
Ella Fitzgerald has a swing version:
I can’t find a professional version, but this song sounds really nice done by an acapella men’s choir, as evidenced by a group called Southern Gentlemen:
Or acapella female choir, as evidenced by a group called Gracenotes:
Is it snowing where you live, readers? I don’t have any snow sticking yet near me 😦 I wonder if I can find a place that does sleigh rides?
