Description
My attempt at a traditional style Carol gone modern, with a message for the world.... a bit high for me in the verses, but it was tricky for me recording the overlapping verse and chorus's so I stood on tip toes and sang my head off and left it as is. I think it adds to the urgency in the song, of getting the 'gifts' delivered before Christmas Day..... hope you like it.... and you can dance as you listen, M

Lyrics
TheAngel Sleigh.
(Chorus)
When the winter snow is falling, Listen for the Angel Sleigh,
High above you they’ll be toiling, sending joy and peace your way.

1.Look out for the angel sleigh, it’s heading out your way,
Gliding through the soft white snow, it’s beautiful they say,
Sometimes, you’ll see it as a star, shining in the sky,
Sailing oh so very high, over mountains high.

(Repeat Chorus)
Look out for the angel sleigh, it’s sure to pass on by,
They say it’s pulled by Angels, sent from way on high,
The sleigh is filled with wondrous gifts, for all the world to know,
In the form of Love and Peace, Goodwill that falls like snow.

(Repeat Chorus)
3.Look out for the Angel Sleigh, speeding through the snow,
Gather up those Angel gifts as they fall below,
Spread them well throughout the world, in time for Christmas Day,
Love; Goodwill; and Peace for all, let naught stand in your way.

(Repeat Chorus)
4.The sleigh is filled with wondrous gifts, for all the world to know,
In the form of Love and Peace, Goodwill that falls like snow.
Spread them well throughout the world, in time for Christmas Day,
Love; Goodwill; and Peace for all, let naught stand in your way.

(Repeat Chorus). and outro.

Glad you
liked it Tim. Yes it does have a 'trancy' sort of beat especially when we get to the middle part with the Angel voices....... and I see what you mean about 'Yahweh', but it's not a subliminal message, just my local dialect singing 'your way' LOL, regards M

This is great Maurice ... love the synth work and the beat ....the chorus is catchy ... and you're not too early for a Christmas tune. We're putting up our decorations this evening and I saw some flakes fall this morning so along with this song I'm starting to feel the spirit!

Wow.
Maurice,
I hope this doesn't sound irreverent, but...
what you been smokin', dude?
This one is off-the-Movitz charts in so many ways. Such a unique delivery, accompanied by that pounding bass and the chug-a-chug that is just packed full of energy. No midnight lounge lizard here. You are off to something pretty amazing, I'd say. Who'd have thought all this was hiding inside you? Glad you are "letting the dogs out." (And I just can't help by ending with your characteristic lol...and I mean that in the kindest way.) You rock!

Ha Ha Paul,
the way my mind works I don't need to smoke or to take pills (except from the Doc.); I just close my eyes. This just sort of all came together somehow starting with that bass... even the lyrics fell into place...... and...... never judge a book by its cover they say LOL.... I'm always on the look out for something new so I thought I'd do a carol with some synths.... really pleased you liked this, regards M

I'm very pleased you were persuaded to drop in on this one Cees...... it does move along at a pace, so that makes it a bit different than the norm. Glad you approve of this one, though there's a more conventional one to come yet, cheers M

A dance club Christmas Carol.
You may have a modern classic, as they say.
Besides, you can always rewrite it as ' Angel Slays' for the end of the world challenge. The avenging archangel initiates armeggedon with heavy guitars and a ' cookie monster' death metal voice :-)

Hi Dave
definitely 'Dance Club'; I always like 'two for one'..... I could do with calling on the 'avenging Angel' for whoever passed this flue onto me LOL.... love that expression 'Death Metal voice' LOL, but I see where you're coming from with that Ha ha, cheers M

in no time if he tries to keep up with that beat. Good job Mo, I too am not a big Christmas carol fan, but if a friend here posts one, I gotta give it a shot, I'm glad I did.

Sleigh Time Dance
I like the dance beat you have and the key melody that floats along. The effect on your voice gives it a cool grit that drew me in. Not to "sweet" but still carries the sentiment.

thanks for the download.

Those harmonies really give this an unusual sound - very unique. The beat/groove is downright infectious - most likely now I'll be spending the rest of the day with this very cool tune bouncing around in my head - thanks! :)

Tough task to write a modern Christmas song. The classics are so ingrained in our collective memory it's hard to break new ground. You really rose to the challenge! Love the backing track. Strong melody. Well written lyrics.

The 4 on the floor gives it a driving beat which reminds me of the frenetic holiday pace around here. The bell-like, and soft washes reminds me of more traditional carols. Angel Sleigh = Soul Train for the holidays.
