Happy Christmas from Modern Confessional



The boys of the NYPD Choir
were singing Galway Bay
and the bells were ringing out
for Christmas Day...

-- The Pogues & Kirsty MacColl, "Fairytale of New York" (the greatest Christmas song ever)

Merry Christmas, Collin...and yes this is a classic - adore it!
Merry Christmas, Collin. I love that song too - but this one is also essential.

See you in the Tardis.

da Pogues!! As we started a walking tour in Dublin last year the guide asked each of us what we associated with Ireland. I said, "The Pogues." and he yelled, "Good Man!" (nevermind they're actually more London)

You just can't stop being "insensitive" can you? The lyrics are unfortunate and baffling. ;-)

Seriously I hope you have a great Christmas. Thinking about you.

What a wonderful surprise to see The Pogues here this morning! Paul (husband) sang along, snow is falling again, blueberry pancakes await.
Merry Christmas!

Great song and great video. Even though Christmas is just another day of struggle and disappointment for too many people, the thought that they can still reach for meaning is inspirational to say the least. BTW, if you ever get a chance to see The Pogues, don't miss it.

Also, don't miss Christy Moore's rendition of "Fairy Tale."

Happy Christmas!

wow, K - thanks ever so much for the Christy Moore link!

My pleasure, Rupert!

For anyone unfamiliar with Christy Moore, Liz will confirm that he is Ireland's greatest living singer and is as big there as Elvis ever was here. His younger brother Barry -- who is terrific in his own right --performs as Luka Bloom so that he's not lost in Christy's shadow.
