And the bells were ringing out …

♫ The boys of the NYPD choir
Were singing “Galway Bay”
And the bells were ringing out
For Christmas day ♫

“Fairytale of New York” is a song by the Celtic punk group The Pogues, released in 1987 and featuring the British singer Kirsty MacColl. The song is an Irish folk style ballad, written by Jem Finer and Shane MacGowan, and featured on The Pogues’ album If I Should Fall from Grace with God. It is frequently cited as the best Christmas song of all time in various television, radio and magazine related polls in the UK and Ireland. [wikipedia]
