In The Drunk Tank




It's become a cliche but the only Christmas song that's out in the popular consciousness, is actually good and can be listened to on repeat is The Pogues number 2 single Fairytale Of New York. It's beautiful, a mixture of rawness and romance. The version posted here is an earlier one than the released A-side, an accordian intro, different lyrics and arrangement and Cait O'Riordan in the Kirsty MacColl role. Whatever you're doing tonight and tomorrow, have a good one. Happy Christmas!

Hmmmh ... interesting version, I don't know though whether the 'other' one should be prefered or not. Perhaps it's just because it is so well known by now ... as it so often is with these things.

Either way, SA, a very happy Christmas to you and your family!

interesting version Adam, never heard it before.Seen them numerous times over the years from The International 2/Carousel to Brixton and his solo career. Fell out with this a few years back 'cos it was played to death but still rhe best Xmas record ever.
Have a good one, JohnP
