Thread Name: Fairytale of New York censored by Beeb!
Subject: RE: Fairytale of New York censored by Beeb!
When I was a kid in the North East of England and I, or someone else, was referred to as a "faggot" it meant that they were a source of annoyance or irritation. It was many years later that I learned that in USA it was a term used to describe a homosexual.
Anyway I think that it is a great song (for life not just for Christmas)and Christy Moore just edges it over the Pogues and Kirsty.
