25 Songs of Christmas, Day 1: TLC, “Sleigh Ride”

Here at Soul In Stereo, we’re counting down to Christmas by featuring our favorite holiday tracks. Here’s today’s Christmas classic:

TLC has experienced a bit of a revival this year, but Nick Birdsong is quick to remind us of their glory days. He kicks off our 25 Songs of Christmas countdown with 1993’s “Sleigh Ride.”

The Motown era yielded a ton of classic Christmas songs but the ’90s had quite a few gems as well. The lyrics are ridiculous and Left Eye sounds drunk but the atmosphere is just so fun and festive.

Listen up, cuz Santa’s tryin’ to mack in his Cadillac.
