Fairy Tale of New York
I've mentioned this track ad infinitum at this time of year - it is regarded by many this side of the Atlantic as one of the great all time Christmas tracks. It was released 25 years ago, but is currently in the UK top 20 singles chart. In today's Guardian is an article about its history and development. Also included is the original video. A fascinating story about the development of a song over a two year period before its eventual release.
