RIP Shane McGowan


Recommended Posts

One of my all time favourites, I loved listening to The Pogues in my misspent youth.

I saw his photo the other day when he was discharged from hospital after a long illness.He didn't look very well then.Still,very sad news.He was always very entertaining ,whether performing or being interviewed.Unlike some of the other seasonal songs we'll be hearing over the few weeks I won't get tired of listening to Fairy tale of New York.Rest in peace Shane MacGowan.

"Fairytale of New York" is a hit that has everything you could want. It begins with a sombre tone, then brightens up, becoming cheerful. It's full of spirit. I haven't listened to it yet this year, but when I do, I'll be grateful for Shane McGowan's genius. May he rest in peace.

It’s truly a pity, but he lived his life the way he wanted to. It’s unfortunate that he couldn’t have received help earlier in his life, but perhaps it was his lifestyle that made him so extraordinary. Rest in Peace, Shane McGowan.

I remember reading about this: https://www.theguardian.com/tv-and-radio/2015/dec/20/shane-macgowan-a-wreck-reborn-new-teeth-tv-special

I felt happy for him, as he seemed to have a lot of demons which fueled his behaviour and habits. He was very underrated and possibly one of Irelands best songwriters. I am very saddened to learn about his death. :(
