“The most won-DER-ful time…� Part II

Dec. 7: The Pogues feat. Kirsty MacColl - "Fairytale of New York"

Arriving a decade before the Dropkick Murphys and Flogging Molly, the Pogues blazed a path to mainstream success for Celtic punk bands with, um, less-than-traditional vocalists with this maudlin-sounding Yuletide duet, colloquially known as "Christmas In the Drunk Tank."

Any Christmas song that contains an exchange like "You're a bum, you're a punk/You're an old slut on junk" is alright by me. Happy holidays!
