Fairytale of New York

This song has been in my head for literally 3 weeks. I think it is the best Christmas song ever, followed by River by Joni Mitchell and Happy Xmas (War is Over) by John Lennon. I’m obviously excluding traditional Christmas songs – my personal favorite is Carol of the Bells.

Here is the video of Fairytale of New York by the Pogues. I love the Pogues. Shane MacGowan’s voice is so gritty and real. I want to sit down and have a drink with him.

Even though this is a Christmas song, its sentiments carry over to New Year’s too, and I’m still in a reflective mood. The final verse is just beautiful.
