12-19-09 The Pogues and Kirsty MacColl – Fairytale of New York

Posted by Sean on December 20, 2009

Well, like we were talking about today, Shanoah, Jesus could be one hell of a stage magician. Hell, he’s got the long hair already. Just throw on some black eyeliner and an ankh necklace and voila! Criss Angel.

Anyway, we’ve had the Pogues’ Fairytale of New York on the blog before. But, see, we haven’t had it during Christmas (I think), so it’s cool.

This is from a live performance in 1988 on Saint Patrick’s Day. And, hey, Shane McGowan sounds like he’s completely potted. What a surprise. In case you’re having trouble following him, you can always follow along with the lyrics at the Pogues’ site here.

Keep in mind, this song is Christmas for more people than you’d care to think.
