393 – The Pogues featuring Kirsty MacColl – Fairytale Of New York (1987)
Written by Jem Finer and Shane MacGowan
Produced by Steve Lillywhite
Label – Pogue Mahone
Australian music critic Claire Stuchbery sums it up. “”Fairytale Of New York” begins with a subdued piano intro and builds up to the fast paced tempo that makes The Pogues music so infectious. It’s a touchingly delivered tale of an immigrant couple falling in love, arguing and repenting in New York”.
