My very most favorite Xmas song (ever). I saw the Pogues perform this live at Sloss Furnace in Birmingham in 1988*, right before Shane McGowan left the tour. Best show ever.



*It was, in fact, Saturday June 11, 1988. Luka Bloom opened for them.

May I be both happy and jealous you saw that show? *grins*

Well-wishes to you and Kathryn for Christmas.

My household envies you. Okay, maybe not the cats, but the rest of us. That is derspatchel's eternal Christmas song.

Christmas songs
That was a great Christmas song that I've never heard before (I'm a very deprived child), thanks for introducing it to me! Being a Pagan, my two favorite's are Dar Williams' The Christians and the Pagans and Sinead O'Connor's I Believe in You (as well as the Charlie Brown Christmas CD and The Temptation's Silent Night because of some memories it brings back of my Dad). Anyways, I hope that you and Kathryn have a great day!

Reminds me of when I was in my twenties. That was a long time ago.

Best to you and your loved ones.

As the kids are saying these days, OMG. I can only imagine the energy and intensity of seeing them Live.
