Is it weird that one of my favorite versions of today’s song is from a 1996 “Saturday Night Live” (SNL) skit? It featured two of my favorite regulars, Will Ferrell and Molly Shannon, along with a very funny Whitney Houston a few years after “The Bodyguard” was released. The skit is hilarious and ends with her and Shannon trying to out-sing each other on this song. No, I don’t think it’s weird. I think it would be strange if I did not appreciate this fabulous piece of pop culture. Another one of my favorite versions of today’s song is by a 1960’s girl group who not only gave us some great music, but also helped to introduce all of us to another part of pop culture-The Wall of Sound.
The Ronettes: “Sleigh Ride” (1963, music written by Leroy Anderson in 1948 & lyrics written by Mitchell Parish in 1950).
