This is very well done! I love HP song parodies :) it's a guilty pleasure. "Sleigh Ride" is a great song - lighthearted, carefree - and just the tune itself portrays Harry's feeling when he's playing Quidditch quite wonderfully. There are a couple dodgy bits in the lyrics in terms of timing, but as I recall, there are some in the actual song as well. Overall, this is probably one of my favorite HP-ized songs I've ever heard/read. Merry Christmas! ~Virgil

Author's Response:

I'm glad you like it, as you are one of the more prominent parody-ers (that's so not a word, hehe). And I agree about the dodgy bits, but I do blame the dodgy bits in the song. I listened to the song a dozen times with lyrics and I still couldn't figure out how it was supposed to be congruous.

The concept overall was simple to come up with; it was trying to fit it into the tune and make it agree with the overall syntax of the song that was difficult, considering its pre-existing faults. Just >.<

I'm glad you enjoyed it, and thanks always for the read and review. :D

So, here's the deal, I meant to write everyone Christmas reviews yesterday, but I fell asleep rather early (too much mead) Here's a delayed Christmas present for you (and there could be some more).

Oh yay! Perfect version of this song, Jess. I love the action involved here, you really write Quidditch well, even in poetry form (and writing Quidditch is bloody hard!)

I'm singing along with this as I type - hee hee. ~Carole~

Author's Response:

I'm glad you liked it. This was harder than it looked, but mostly because of syllabic reasons. :-/ I probably should have picked a song that I knew, but it seems like it came out all right.

Thanks for the stop by, dearie, and Merry Late, Never Truncated to the Letter 'X-Mas' Christmas.

Yes! This is perfect! The words fit almost perfectly with the tune, there are only a few parts where I either have to say the word slowly or quickly to make it fit. Otherwise I love it!

Author's Response:

I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Honestly, after listening to this song a dozen times, I can divulge that the parts to which you're referring, the dodgy bits, were the same parts in the original lyrics that didn't seem to fit in with the song, either. I just hoped for the best and this is what came out, hehe.

Thanks for reading and reviewing. Have a good night/day/daypart in which you currently dwell!
