Christmas Eve In The Drunk Tank

Fairytale Of New York
The Pogues featuring Kirsty MacColl (1987)
Fairytale Of New York is one of the most well-known and loved Christmas songs ever recorded, but I didn't even know it existed until eight years ago.  I've never heard it on the radio or on television in the United States, but we spent the holidays in London back in 2014 and I heard it at least a dozen times while we were there.  It's not at all a typical Christmas song, which is why I have fallen in love with it and played it every year since I first heard it.
