Subject: RE: Obit: Shane MacGowan (1957-2023) of the Pogues
Thanks for the links, Felipa.

I went looking for a list of songs written by Shane MacGowan and also found this article on the Australian Triple J radio site. I used to listen to that radio station a lot because they played a lot of out-there music which the commercial stations would not play - well, not until the songs broke the barriers into the consciousness of the commercial scene - so thanks to them I discovered The Pogues.

Shane MacGowan wrote powerful, poignant songs. One of them became an intense and superb Christmas anthem
