The Pogues & Kirsty MacColl "Fairytale of New York"
maybe the best Christmas song ever
real video here
director Peter Dougherty
the December 19 re-release of the record/video was chosen to coincide with the fifth anniversary of the tragic death of Kirsty MacColl. The band is splitting royalties to charities for the homeless and to the Justice For Kirsty Campaign
that's Matt Dillon playing the cop at the beginning
as far as contemporary christmas songs go, the walkmen stole that crown last year.
this is still top notch, though.
