It is December, I have done all of my Christmas shopping, I am decorating the tree tonight and I will be listening to this song a lot over the festive season. It has been my absolute favourite Christmas song since before I even knew who the Pogues were or how bad Shane McGowan’s teeth were. And as someone on YouTube commented: “I've seen the Coca Cola truck, but Christmas ain’t Christmas until you hear Fairytale of New York!!”
Sadly, once again, not going to see The Pogues (and Frank frickin’ Turner) this Christmas. Unless anyone would like to go with me, and it isn’t sold out?
