Billy Bragg and Florence of Florence and the Machine covering probably the greatest Christmas song of all time, “Fairytale of New York,” by The Pogues. Happy Christmas to all you out there in bored internet land today, whomever you are reading this post out of circumstance or clutter.
The thing about Christmas is, it’s always safe to wish someone a Happy Holiday, because, no matter whether they actually observe any holiday, they most likely get a little time off from the world that day. And then you reflect on all the dreams that brought you to where you are and debate with harsh wind shear what it all meant in the long run. Severe thanks to Florence, Billy and the BBC Radio for tying it all together. Be well.
