So will it be Denny Laine (Mull of Kintyre) or Shane McGowan (The Fairytale of New York)?
There’s form for this of course. If you want a number one then you need to die first. I give you in no particular order : Freddie Mercury, Johnny Cash, David Bowie, Michael Jackson, George Micheal and no doubt many more – all assured of the number one spot for no other reason than some cynical shit of a record company cashed in on the grief of fans (sad cunts, but that’s another story)
Well I’m happy to put up with being a nobody if it means I have to die first to get a hit record.
Anyway, my version of the Pogues Christmas number one is, in my humble opinion, not only better but more accurate.
