Christmas Note #2

For those who are suffering from the overabundance of sickly sweet holiday music, and with apologies for the use of the f-word, name that song!

“You’re a bum. You’re a punk. You’re an old slut on junk. Lying there almost dead on a drip in that bed. You scumbag, you maggot. You cheap lousy faggot, Happy Christmas, your arse, I pray God it’s our last….”

Don’t know? It’s “Fairy Tale of New York” with The Pogues and Kirsty MacColl.

Here’s the video. Shane even has his teeth in, although a friend pointed out that they’re lip-syncing.

On a sadder note, Kirsty was killed by a speedboat while diving Cozumel in 2000. The boat was speeding through waters that were off-limits to that type of powerboat and there are grave doubts as to whether justice was ever served to the one responsible for her death.

Although completely unorthodox, this is one of my favorite Christmas songs.
