The Pogues & Kirsty MacColl “Fairytale of New York” video featured on 120 Minutes, 1988
The absolute best Christmas song ever! This is how you successfully pull off a sentimental Christmas song that makes even the most jaded soul get misty-eyed. There’s not a dry eye in the house by the time the third verse ends!
(See “Christmas Shoes” as a textbook example of how to epically fail at evoking sentimentality in your listeners.)
