Advent Calendar Day 3: The Ronettes ‘Sleigh Ride’

‘Sleigh Ride’ by the Ronettes is one of, if not the best, Christmas song of all time. The neighing horse and the jingling of sleigh bells open the song before we are hit with Phil Spector’s iconic Wall of Sound porduction style. This song sits as the most famous song from Phil Spector’s A Christmas Gift from Phil Spector which showcases his oft imitated production style. Spector’s Wall of Sound combined with the Ronettes’ bouncy vocals make this the perfect Christmas party song.
