The Pogues

I've rediscovered The Pogues. They are a great mix of Celtic and grittiness. And like Morrissey, their songs easily become Ohrwuermer (ear worms). I love the music and the lyrics, but not if I really pay attention to them. For example, from "Fairytale of New York:"

It was Christmas Eve, babe
In the drunk tank
And an old man said to me
Won't see another one

Listen/see here.
