Cool Shane MacGowan RIP

Shane MacGowan, the lead singer and songwriter of trailblazing Celtic punk band the Pogues and one of the all-time great bandleaders, has died aged 65 following a long period of ill health. A family statement said he died at 3.30am on 30 November, and was described as “our most beautiful, darling and dearly beloved”.

His wife Victoria Mary Clarke wrote in a statement on social media: “Shane will always be the light that I hold before me and the measure of my dreams and the love of my life … I am blessed beyond words to have met him and to have loved him and to have been so endlessly and unconditionally loved by him.”

Sad. Frankly he did well to last so long. "Fairytale Of New York" is and always will be the best Christmas song.

I would bet my life at one time that it was Bob Geldof singing this.
I've not heard it so far this Christmas

I believe last year the BBC said they won't play 'Fairytale...' anymore because of it's bad language, and chauvinistic attitudes... They did play it on BBC R2 following the announcement of Shane's passing, and the opening lines only on subsequent news bulletins... I didn't notice if they bleeped out any offensive words or phrases...

Yes, definitely the best Christmas song, sums up real life at a time of year where so much pressure is put on folk.

Rest in peace Shane, I'll be singing the 'proper' lyrics at the top of my voice.

Dia dhaoibh.
