Kirstywatch: The Penultimate Weekend

Only another seven days to go until the Xmas Number 1 for 2014 is revealed: will it be this year’s X-Factor Winner, or can the prize be prised out of Simon Cowell’s back-pocket again? Wait and see.

However, I’m more concerned with the annual faring of A Fairytale of New Yprk, and The Pogues featuring the late and utterly great Kirsty MacColl.

Back for a tenth successive Xmas for no better reason than that people love it, the song may just be on for its first top 10 placing since 2007, having climbed to no 11 and, for once, placed itself ahead of its perennial rival, All I Want for Christmas is You.

I love seeing it come back, year in, year out, without promotion or effort. Give me a Xmas present, people, keep on buying it for the next seven days. I’ll owe you one.
