Fairytale Of New York è un celebre pezzo dei Pogues, scritto dal cantante Shane MacGowan assieme al banjista Jem Finer e inciso nel 1987 con l’album If I Should Fall From Grace With God.
È una ballata in stile folk irlandese, considerata da molti la più bella canzone natalizia di tutti i tempi e divenuta un classico in tempo di feste soprattutto in Irlanda e Regno Unito.
Il testo narra di un uomo che si risveglia alla vigilia di Natale e che, ancora in preda ai postumi di una sbornia, ricorda di aver appena trascorso un periodo terribile della propria vita. Alla voce, MacGowan è accompagnato dalla cantante inglese Kirsty MacColl.
