    Default 'Fairytale of new york ' best Xmas song ever

    I cant get it out of my mind all evening

    Looked it up on Wikipedia and was astonished that it was mostly popular in Ireland and the UK

    Barely mentioned in the USA! !! SHOCK HORROR how could that be....

    Pogues and Kirsty McColl were not big in the USA.

    And it's a bit too gritty for some of our American cousins.

    Didn't they get offended that 'faggot' was in the song, which had a completely different meaning at the time. Before my time so do correct me if I'm wrong. Didn't they change it to maggot or something?
