Make Fairytale of New York Number 1 for Christmas

I bought my first song from iTunes today, Fairytale of New York by the Pogues and KirstyMacColl. I already had it on CD but I thought I'd do my bit to make it Number 1 for Christmas 2007.

The once great Christmas Number 1 title has meant nothing since XFactor made a mockery of the process. Now there is a campaign to get Fairytale of New York to the number 1 spot instead of the latest 1 month wonder from Simon Cowell. Who won Xfactor this year? I've already forgotten.

Did you happen to hear that BBC Radio 1 had tried to censor it? Apparently you can play "gangsta rap" but it's too offensive to have Kirsty and Shane calling each other "slut" and "faggot".

Maybe Shane McGowan should release a rap version of Fairytale of New York?

Soon the very term "Christmas" will be offensive, anyway. Harrumph. Harrumph.
