It’s Christmas Time Again

30 years since the release of Fairytale
Today it’s been 17 years of remembering Kirsty
It is time once again to raise your glasses and to
her mother Jean who campaigned tirelessly
until she too left us  earlier this year
Let Billy Bragg be your guide
and remember always

 

 

It’s Ed and Anne-Marie for Christmas!

It’s almost time.

We will as is customary be bringing you the best (and perhaps the worst!) of Kirsty-covering YouTube madness from the past year.  A new treat to be enjoyed every day until January.

Here’s the wonderful Anne-Marie with some bloke giving it a shot.  This week sees the original recording hitting its best chart spot for a decade, rising three places to No. 7.

Since you asked … here’s the original unimpeachable version.
