I was going to run down my fave songs of the year, which I'll probably get to eventually, but I stumbled over this Kirsty MacColl video on YouTube and decided to post it instead. Not sure what year this came out--probably around '90.

If you're not a Kirsty fan, well, you should be.

She died way too young.

She really did, and in a tragic way.

Fairytale of New York will never have the same impact with another female vocal, e.g. Katie Melua sang with Shane McGowan on BBC and it didn't have anything like the same impact.

I'm sure you've heard of this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kirsty_MacColl#Death_and_.22Justice_for_Kirsty.22_campaign
