that’s your opinion, but understand that the shitty vocals are a big part of the pogues’ style. it’s very important in the sense that it really captures the drunken, happy or solemn feeling that most of the songs have. you may not like it, but it has its value.
Shane Macgowan is a legend !
Free to listen to non musical bullshit. he may be a poet, i cant get past the shitty vocals to find out.
whats with the picture of bukowski at 3:06?
Brilliant statement! We discussed this in a culture class at school. Thank you…
CARLO SANDS SENT ME HERE BECAUSE HE KNOWS WHAT FREEDOM MEANS AND HOW WE WILL NEVER LET THE CHAINS OF POVERTY BIND US !!! SAOIRSE !! #KONYH !!
Deeply moving – it makes me think of the Great Hunger and all death and suffering.
Why feature Bukowski? He hated (freared rather) the Irish!!
The song and the video really pulls at the heart strings……holding back the tears
For my ancestors the McConnells from County Cavan!
This song is the song of any irish emmirgrant 3 living in the uk and it always takes me home, speaks wonders to me… “and we’ll dance to the music” … always and forever a Cork girl <3
Actually Shane re wrote 2 verses but was un-credited
Lmao, whats with the picture of Bukowski?
One of my favorite bands that, it seems, none of my friends or colleagues have even heard of…pity, that! Their loss! Cheers!
engalstiger-You can believe that America is heading in that direction right now.I did understand why the Irish came here.I just wish it didnt have to have happened for them that way,is all.
The time most of the Irish came to america, Ireland was very bad and the thought of actual freedom in those days was worth dying for
as a irishman this ression is far from our worst sturgle
american irish be proud of where you came from
America needed poor to exploit like every other “nation”
It’s sad that the Irish people have to come to the US to make a better life.Ireland is such a beautiful place,and America is going downhill fast. It’s hard living here,…..violence,no jobs,high cost of living,..extreme debt,..etc. As to this video,its really a perfect blending of image and music. I love the Shane oodles.
Phil = Godlike worlds greatest Gay Irish Forest Fan!! GENIUS, his eloquent support of the Hillsborough campaigns will never be forgotten
This is really a great marriage of music and images. Very moving. Thanks, JTpoguemahone.
