The Pogues' 'Fairytale Of New York' has been made the bookies favourite to bag this year's Christmas Number One Single.
This Christmas marks 25 years since the song, featuring the late singer Kirsty MacColl, was released and the band are celebrating the landmark with a special anniversary re-release.
Irish bookmakers Paddy Power has given odds of 25-1 for the song to be top of the Official UK Singles Chart come Christmas Day, making it their favourite. The track will be re-released on iTunes in a song, video and instrumental bundle on November 26 and as a limited-edition 7" vinyl on December 3.

Saw the Pogues & Kirsty McColl perform that at Brixton Academy on New Year's Eve maybe the year after it came out. It was a good gig, as it goes.

That's on my current playlist at work. I've reached a point where what I'm doing makes little sense to me.
Tonight, for example, I'll be playing stuff like that in Sheffield until about 3.30-4ish on Sunday morning. Then I'll get in the car and listen to Radio 2 for the hour's drive home. Contrast.

Bloody class mind.
