Fairytales can come true


There’s a week to go and tradition has reasserted itself. ‘A Fairytale of New York’ has re-entered the Top Twenty for the eleventh successive year, a record that no other single can boast. The song has jumped from 58 to 20, and next Friday is the Official Xmas Chart, so we’ll see where it peaks. With Mariah Carey up to no 13, The Pogues and Kirsty MacColl aren’t going to be this year’s Xmas winner, but it’s still the deepest and most moving of them all.
