Day 15, Christmas music
I wonder what Karen Carpenter would be singing now had she lived.
Yesterday we were in the city; today we’re going to the country.
Take a ride on the
Reading one-horse sleigh

The Carpenters perform “Sleigh Ride.” The song was originally written for orchestra by Leroy Anderson, who conceived of it in 1946 and completed it in 1948. The lyrics were composed in 1950 by Mitchell Parrish. The original recording was by Arthur Fiedler and the Boston Pops in 1949. According to ASCAP, it consistently ranks as one of the top 10 most-performed songs of all songs that have been written by the organization’s members.
