Song of the Day – “Name’s the same” Tuesday – “Sleigh Ride”

The Ventures – Committed

It’s difficult to find two Christmas songs with the same name but a different melody. There are a few – see “Away in a Manger” from two years ago, or the traditional “Christmas Song” versus the one by the Raveonettes posted a few days ago. But only a few.

So here are two vastly different versions of the same song, starting with the Ventures – a surf guitar instrumental.


Committed is as far from an instrumental as you can get – they’re an acapella group. I much prefer this warm R&B version to the acapella version by Pentatonix that came out last year also – that version leaves me cold.
