The Boys of the NYPD Choir Were Singing Galway Bay
Yes, yes - I know you have heard this countless times over the last month or so
BUT - it features the late great Kirsty MacColl
- it is Shane MacGowan's birthday tomorrow
- and it's Christmas
Plain or Pan goes into this in considerably more detail than I ever could and possibly correctly states that this is the best Christmas single of all time (although that has sparked an interesting debate). Phil Spector obviously takes the album honours.
Here are a number of cover versions courtesy of Cover Lay Down
I won't be posting tomorrow so a Merry Christmas to you and yours and I hope Santa is good to you!
