Christmas Countdown 2013 - 7 December

My favourite Christmas songs 8th of 10

Coming in at number 8 is The Pogues and Kirsty MacColl with their awesome Fairytale Of New York.

It was denied the 1987 Christmas No.1 spot in the UK by the Pet Shop Boys, who I also love. I found a Fairytale of New York it to be quirky, dramatic, funny and has me singing along every single time even if Shawn MacGowan good do with a good visit to the dentist!
