Thread Name: Fairytale of New York censored by Beeb!
Subject: RE: Fairytale of New York censored by Beeb!
It's one of my favourite all-time songs. Not just for Christmas. Shane McGowan has written some fine words and interprets them well. I do not think that any of the words in "Fairytale" were done for cheap effect, they make a strong statement and, BBC or not, my son and I will still sing it together when we are out shopping in the festive season. It does tend to keep the crowds away!!! Anyway, even the BEEB has seen the folly of its actions. Good sense prevails!!
