The boys of the NYPD Choir were singing "Galway Bay"/ and the bells were ringing out for Christmas Day...
You have to love the British. Who else would pick something with the lyrics "You scumbag, you maggot/ You cheap lousy faggot/ Happy Christmas your arse/ And thank God it's our last" as their favorite holiday song?
Pogues' Tune Named Top Christmas Song
LONDON - A bittersweet ballad awash in drink, drugs and regret was voted Britons' favorite Christmas song in a poll released Thursday.
The Pogues' "Fairytale of New York" was selected by British viewers of music channel VH1, beating standards including Bing Crosby (news)'s "White Christmas."
