Fairytale Of New York by The Pogues and Kirsty MacColl.

I suspect that this will be chosen by more than me, for every year it seems to make it back on TV and radio.
The Pogues play all the instruments of an Irish trad band, and both Shane and Kristy make the lyrics sound convincing. This is a big favorite with the Irish both at home and away. It's got everything really, right down to the banter.
Incidentally, the BBC in the UK caused a stir when they decided to ban this, this year. I don't know if the ban still stands but it makes no sense after broadcasting it for the last 9 years.
Anyone who has been following my choices will have noticed some are chosen because my daughter sang them in the High School Christmas concert. This was no exception, performed by a group of singers and musicians selected from the final year.
