More Music of Christmas – Day 21: Sleigh Ride

“Sleigh Ride”
By Los Straitjackets

I featured the Debbie Gibson version of this last year. This year is far from that 80’s pop version. It’s surfing music!

Not much to this song other than it’s a Christmas classic that can transcend musical styles. And it sounds at home in an orchestra as it does with surf guitar. A sandy beach in summer is the exact opposite of a winter sleigh ride, but darn it, it works. Listen to it. Have fun with it.

Great stuff. The entire Los Straitjackets Christmas album should be in your collection.

Tomorrow — we go all in on one of the most well-known Christmas songs.
