18. The Pogues and Kirsty MacColl
Fairytale Of New York is probably the most famous, credible and touching Christmas song ever written. Originally set to be a duet between bassist Cait O’Riordan and Shane MacGowan, O’Riordan left the band in 1986 before the recording. The remaining members got solo artist Kirsty MacColl on board and the rest is Chrimbo history.
