The Pogues: In the wake of the Medusa

Thinking about Kirsty MacColl earlier, it reminded me that her single with The Pogues, 'Fairytale of New York', was re-released in the UK to mark the fifth anniversary of her tragic death.

I decided to find out how it did, and was pleased to see that it ended up #3 in the charts (it had originally reached #2 in 1987, when it was first released).

What was also interesting to read was that a documentary, 'The Story of Fairytale of New York', was shown on UK TV on December 19th. I need to find a BitTorrent of that, as it sounds pretty interesting.
