I also love the Coope Boyes and Simpson festive stuff, both on their own and with Fi Frazer, Jo Freya and Georgina Boyes. The latter includes many versions of some of the great South Yorkshire carols. Wonderful harmonies.

(I'm sure we've had this discussion before!  ??? :-\)

I heard the other day that Bob Dylan is to bring out a Christmas CD. I can't wait to hear his version of Frosty the Snowman!

Oh no, poor Shelley!  Some of my most embarrassing choral moments have been whimsical arrangements of naff Christmas (sorry, C*******s) novelty songs  :-[

The music I most enjoy at *that* time of year, is Nine Lessons and Carols from Trinity College, Cambridge. I can just about get by with trad stuff like "Gaudete" by Steeleye Span. But that's about it.  :)

Yes, Fairytale is my favourite of more recent Christmas songs, too. But what lyrics do you think you are mishearing, Carolyn?


The verse where Kirsty and Shane are having their drunken row.  I'm sure the BBC wouldn't have played my version  ;D

Definitive lyrics of FoNY are here (copyright MacGowan and Finer): http://www.pogues.com/Releases/Lyrics/LPs/IfIShould/Fairytale.html

And there have indeed been times when the BBC havve censored the lyrics, or demanded they be changed for live performance. Not to mention one or two cover versions that have, erm, adjusted them.

I nearly got it right, then!  Mine's a bit more censorable, but I don't care and sing along at the top of my voice when it's on in the car

That's the lyrics as I know them. Could be worse, mind- have you heard their version of Gerry Rafferty's "Her Father didn't like me anyway"?!!!

No I haven't.  Is it nearly a Kafoozalum moment?

Almost as naughty as the full lyrics version of Kafoozalum!  ;)

Though actually I don't think The Pogues have ever recorded that song, though it's wrongly attributed to them in some places. 'Twas done by Shane and The Popes, his "other band". (Pogues obsessive, moi?  ;))
