If you know me at all, you know my favorite Christmas song of all time is Bing and Bowie’s “Peace on Earth/Little Drummer Boy.” But you also know it wouldn’t be Christmas if I didn’t share The Pogues and Kirsty MacColl’s “Fairy Tale of New York.”
Don’t forget to look for Matt Dillon’s appearance as the officer in the first few scenes.
If you’d like to read about how this most unusual Christmas song came about, Wikipedia has a good article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fairytale_of_New_York.
I still love that Bing/Bowie song and LOVE the Pogues song!!

They have been and remain the top two in my carol book, though I do love Chris Isaak’s CD.
