Fairytale Of New York. Lyrics

Recommended Posts

Reminds me of a few years ago when someone wanted the Welsh RFU to ban people from singing 'Delilah' when Wales played their internationals because it glorified violence towards women.   Thought at the time, good look stopping 70,000+ men & WOMEN from singing along to that.

Probably - with Lola.  Girls and Boys blur together.

The BBC are obviously desperate for attention to save their dying empire, absolutely ludicrous this when you see some of the lyrics of songs they are playing.

Be interesting to see what a bit of distance does. Let's say that in about 5 years all Christmas compilations released will include the tampered-with version. That's all younger people will ever hear. Will it, to them, still be a glorious song and be voted a top Xmas number in a decade or so?

Will the lyrics even matter or will the overall feel of the song be the nostalgia point?

I can’t link to the tweet on here, well, not if I want to keep my account. So you’ll have to go and find this yourselves.

 

 Laurence Fox has launched a predictable campaign to get the original to number one. The Pogues official reply is priceless.

 

It seems that they aren’t too troubled by this.

I'm a bit late to the party, as per usual.

 

Read about the spat on the Mail Online site. 

The reader's comments are hilarious. :hihi:

Radio edits have been made of many songs for years now - so they can even get played at all.
