The Advent Calender Of DOOM 2012! Day 14
It’s Aaron back again, helping JJ get through the Advent Calender without losing his will to live. Mostly. I’m not entirely sure my last entry had any sort of sanity related to it and this one is no different!
JJ has told me on many previous occasions that his favourite Christmas song ever ever ever ever is Fairytale of New York by The Pogues and Kirsty McColl. And sure, ’tis a mighty song indeed. But it wasn’t the only version of that song that I grew up with.
Dustin The Turkey is a household name here in Ireland. Known as much as, if not more than, The Pogues themselves. He’s had a television career spanning 20 years and even represented us in the Eurovision song contest. He also can’t sing.
Dervla Kirwan is an actress. She also can’t sing.
Together they combined in 1997 to create a… memorable… version of the legendary song. And now, I get to share my pain.
