    Ah, here it is, my favorite Christmas song. My rumor and fact Elivs Costello had challenged Shane MacGowan of the Pogues to write a Christmas song. The demos of which kicked around for years until the Pogues were been produced by Steve Lillywhite. Steve took the tapes home to his wife Kirsty MacColl and over the course of a weekend this masterpiece was created.

    “I could have been someone, well so could anyone” resonates as Shane and Kirsty reflect

    The most wonderful of all songs

      Wow, I am quite glad then I played this. That this was created over a weekend is amazing. I wonder why it kicked around for years. Kirsty MacColl is the perfect touch.

    Certainly not my favorite Christmas song, but rather one I reserve the word “interesting” for. Thought you might (or maybe not 🙂 ) enjoy this version by Big Mike Geier and Storm Large, one of the principal vocalists for Pink Martini. They give it their all, masks and all.

      I really like this. I’m not sure how the clown fits into the lyrics, but it is an interesting choice. I love the red dots. She and he are wonderful together. They are far clearer than cThe Pogues with the lyrics.

      I like the weirdness of this song.
