Ahh, the Pogues...I'm a big fan of them. But you are correct, they are only ever culturally relevant anymore around Christmas time when that song finds airplay -- and it's a great song, so I am fine with that.

Kirsty MacColl sang on that one. I'm sure I've got a cassette somewhere with her singing "There's a guy works down the chip shop swears he's Elvis". The cassette came courtesy of Weetabix cereal, if you ate enough and sent off the tokens. It had four songs, including "Come on Eileen" by Dexy's Midnight Runners. I forget the other two songs. That would have been the first music I owned. Which is a very different thing from being the first music I ever bought...

That's such a great cereal box gift. Best I ever got was a misshapen bouncy ball meant to bounce at unpredictable angles. Which was pretty great, itself.

Hah, that's got to be one of the most "80s" videos I've seen. Fantastic. Never heard of her before, and didn't know she was the singer from "Fairytale."

Wikipedia tells me a tragic but heroic story regarding her death -- she saved her young son from being struck by a watercraft, sadly being killed herself in the process:
