The Pogues

Actually I was working already on a different music blog entry, but I want to get this one out. I was invited to join the Organic Dancefloor last thursday. And it was a really great experience. A lot of nice people enjoying a dance evening of sort of improvisational traditional folk dancing with influences from different parts of europe. Three bands playing throughout the evening. I definitely plan to go there again. :)

Which brings me to the band I want to present you now. They also play sort-of traditional songs, or at least with traditional instruments, and are also quite danceable to. This is about The Pogues. And these are the songs that I do enjoy listening to every now and then:

  • Medley: Don't meddle with the Medley. Rather dance to it.
  • Fairytale of New York: Well, we're almost in the season for it. :)
  • Streams of Whiskey: Also quite the style of song that they are known for and party with at concerts.

Like always, enjoy!

Yeah, saw the Pogues here in Berlin when they had replaced Shane McGowan with Joe Strummer. (Mr Strummer was the tour manager and when Mr McGowan had an alcohol related breakdown he just sang for the rest of the tour.) The Irish folk version of "London Calling" was so great!

Here's my all time favourite version of Fairy tale of New York. I'm pretty sure Shane and the gang would appreciate this version too since it's all about two of life's underdogs that sing to each other. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YHoJ3BD6xas
