#xmasongs: day five

friends, and by now

regular #showertuners, will probably be aware of my (at times perverse) proclivities with regard to key changes (I Wanna Be The Only One by Eternal anyone?)

given such, it simply couldn’t be that this list could get very far without featuring this beautifully festive example of my favourite musical flourish.

sweetly sung by two sisters and their cousin, from Washington Heights, Manhattan, this tune was sort of nominated by our good friend JohnDray3000 (soon to be Dr Dray) – who, in a fleeting reference to ‘the obvious’, invoked Phil Spector’s classic Christmas album a.k.a.
A Christmas Gift For You From Philles Records
(before going on to actually nominate some stuff that is probably too edgy and cool for us here)

despite, i must admit, a partiality for KT Tunstall’s recent cover, here is a swinging number taken from that very album and offered to him and you all with the very best of Christmas wishes.

here’s Sleigh Ride by The Ronettes
