festivus for the underdog

My all-time favorite holiday song is the Pogues’ “Fairytale of New York.” Today, the Guardian delivers unto us the story of how the song came together, the brilliant disaster that is singer Shane MacGowan, and the making of the video. Music fans will be surprised to learn the number of other songs that influenced the tune.
