Holiday Video of the Day: The Pogues and Kirsty MacColl, “Fairytale of New York”
The Pogues - A Fairytale Of New York
Uploaded by vince_suelze. - Music videos, artist interviews, concerts and more.
Beyond the beautiful melody, most people remember this song for the third verse, a venal shouting match between two addled, disillusioned lovers gone to seed. Then in the final verse, Shane MacGowan unfurls the sadness behind the anger, the lost dreams of this couple and how, despite all the bile, everything they have is wrapped up in the other, bad teeth and all.
And the bells were ringing out on Christmas Day.
