The Story Behind 'A Fairytale Of New York'

A Fairytale of New York by the Pogues with Kirsty MacColl is the Christmas song that makes it onto my blog year after year. It's rollicking and gritty and sad and authentic. Open Culture brings us the story behind the song.

I wasn't going to post the song until Christmas week but I might as well do it now.
