The Pogues and Kirsty MacColl, Fairytale of New York.
Christmas dreams, shattered and otherwise. Grubby lyrics and soaring music. Tenderness and hope – which, after all, is what Christmas is all about.
Merry Christmas. And a tip of the tuque to Walt Kelly, who brought joyous nonsense to Christmas when I was a boy.
Well said, Doctor….such a classic song….breaks your fucking heart, as they say….RIP Kirsty MacColl…
