WIN a limited edition Fairytale of New York seven-inch vinyl

Win A Copy of The Fairytale of New York / The Pogues and Kirsty MacColl

The greatest greatest Christmas song never to get to number one? Quite probably. The Pogues and Kirsty MacColl peaked at number two in the UK in 1987 with Fairytale Of New York, kept of the top spot by the Pet Shop Boys massive selling Always On My Mind single.

Rhino are celebrating what is the 25th anniversary of the record by reissuing it, but as well as the usual digital versions (single, instrumental and video) they have also issued physical version in the shape of a limited edition seven-inch vinyl, with some fine new artwork and the physical debut of the instrumental version of the track on the B-side.

This seven-inch is limited to just 2000 copies and is out today available from Rough Trade Records. The digital versions can be found on iTunes.

We have a copy of the vinyl to give awayleave a comment to enter and we’ll pick a winner on Monday 10th December.

In the meantime, why not join the Facebook campaign to get Fairytale of New York to number one this Christmas.

What a great song, a real tearjerker, specially that Kirsty is gone and Shane can barely stand up long enough to croak out a few blehhs; never will lose its emotional wallop.

Dennis Bates

16aec351ebHey would you mind sharing which blog ptfraolm you’re using? I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a tough time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask! 185

Stef Notarangelo

This is easily the greatest Christmas song ever – not sugary or cheesy, just a wonderful tale of two lovers on hard times. Genius.


I love that this song took years for the band to finally perfect through such a wide set of influences and inspiration. Which is probably why it’s stood the test of time so well. A timeless tribute to Kirsty MacColl too.

Jorge De Vivo

As if the other competition wasn’t enough, we have another one now. Great prize!!

Paul O

Jan Hansen

“Fairytale” is a great, great song. But it’s not the only great X-mas tune never get to no. 1. “Driving Home For Christmas” by Chris Rea only made it to no. 53 when first released in 1988 and no. 33 in 2007. Just sayin’…!

sophie saint

Terry Hurley

The best….

Ivan Thomasz

One of the best Christmas songs ever written and recorded. It swings from despair, anger and disappointment with unfulfilled dreams, to bittersweet, melancholic hope. An all-time classic that’s on my playlist every Christmas since I first heard it.


She is sorely missed. A great talent.

Jenna Appleseed

Probably the only Christmas song (except The Power Of Love which isn’t really one) that works outside Christmas. Makes me simultaneously miss Kirsty & wonder how come Shame is still alive.

Stering Cote

Looks like Christmas is coming early this year .


One of the best ever Christmas songs and sang brilliantly by the beauty and the beast of pop, Kirsty and Shane.

Jose M

I wanna be a Pogue!
