Product Description

Fairytale of New York, originally released in 1987 by the Pogues and featuring the late Kirsty MacColl, continues to be one of the greatest Christmas songs around. The Irish folk style ballad featured on If I Should Fall from Grace with God and had originally been penned as a duet between Shane MacGowan and Pogues bassist Cat O'Riordan. But when producer Steve Lillywhite asked his wife Kirsty MacColl to provide a guide vocal demo the outcome was so good that they invited her to take the part on the final recording, and the classic tale of drunken Christmas reverie was complete. Get it now from Townsend Records

5.0 out of 5 stars The "Make It Number One" Campaign 29 Nov 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
For me it is the only true Christmas song. It made number 2 last time and I think it deserves to go straight to number one.
The melody, the lyrics and the band itself...it has it all. Christmas would not be Christmas without it.
Buy it and you will not be dissappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Greatest Christmas song of all time 23 Dec 2005
By P. Gill
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
In several recent UK polls this song has been voted the best Christmas song of all time and rightly so. This song has it all and, amazingly, no one can actually sing it better than Shane McGown.
It's hauntingly brilliant and has stood the test of time. It's re-release is all the more poigniant because Kirsty McCall is now dead. Somehow the pet shop boys beat this to Xmas no 1 in the later 80's. do yourself a favour and buy this CD. You'll never regret it

4.0 out of 5 stars Music to the ears 10 Sep 2010
Format:Audio CD
A harsh sound but it grew on me. When I first heard a track from this I was bowled over by his voice. I was soon drawn into those marvelous vocals once more. A CD to enjoy.
