The bardmeister at his poetic best.
tugs at your heart strings
You know that feeling you get when you hear a melody that makes the hairs on your neck tingle? That’s what this song does for me, just like Rainy Night in Soho. These are achingly beautiful pieces of art. Don’t you ever dare to die, Shane, poetry like this deserves to share immortality with its creator.
I love The Pogues and I love Celtic.
they grew up in tipp happy and later met in london sad
The utter dogs swingers
I’m Italian and living in Germany, and don’t ask me why but this made me homesick… music has no boundaries
is this fucking song 200 yrs old or what? what a songwriter. ageless shit here
Suomea väliin. Mehän olemme varsin irkkumyönteistä kansaa, eikä syyttä. Jos tällaista musiikkia tehtäisiin kotikulmilla, niin jopa jopa diggailisin. Mutta, kun tätä tehtiin vain ulkomailla, niin myönnetään: toimii!! Hienoa Pogues, hienoa Irlanti. Sääli. ettei enää…..
An American loves the old Pogues. A wake made me think of the Pogues again. Fine Irish soul will go to heaven … and we will remember his name: Mulligan.
no offence mate but to put Tuomas Holopainen and Shane McGowan in the same sentence is sacrelige. One of them is best known for a very gay cover of a terrible Big Country song and the other is a complete trad punk legend…
Anuty Monica and Uncle Mick, hesnorelation, eh?
May I recommend the book ‘A Concise Guide To Eighties Music’ by Karl Vorderman. The author is a big fan of this track.
ahhh, 5th gen Aus – all irish – is that why I get choked up at the first chord?
I LOOOVE THIS SONG!!
I think this is by far my favorite pogues song, it not in the top 3.
long live shane mcgowan n jimmy fukin mcnulty
I just love this song…always have and always will…and it better be played at my funeral.
Love this! The tune pops up in my mind often…find myself humming it, whistling it, singing it often.
most be somthing with his date of birth the 25 of december becaus his music sounds fucking briliant and and tuomas holopainen in nightwish also makes fucking great music and that exsplains it when he is born in the same dat as shane macgowan =)
After opening with streams of whiskey they played this both times I’ve seen them. Love this song and this band!
I just lost my twenty year old nephew and thank you Shane, this makes it a tiny bit better.
this song appeals to my Irish dna
the whistles part sounds like fairytale of new york
