Xmas Song Day 1

December 1st. You know what that means. You can officially, un-ironically, and with great abandon, listen to all the xmas music you can cram in your earholes. Here’s one of my favorite songs:

Fairytale of New York, The Pogues featuring Kirsty MacColl:

Sure, it might be a little on the rough side, but the world is rough, even at Christmas. And it has one of the most beautiful exchanges ever in the lyrics. And that’s why I play it every year.

“You took my dreams from me
When I first found you”

“I kept them with me babe
I put them with my own
Can’t make it all alone
I’ve built my dreams around you”
