Since learning of Shane MacGowan's death , I've struggled to pin down  my three favourite Pogues songs.

Been thinking of  a thread like this for a while , where you list your  three favourite songs by a band/singer , then  the absolute best of those three.

Then after a few days/a week or so , someone can select another band, and  we go again.

So , let's start with The Pogues. List your three favourite songs of theirs, then  highlight  your  absolute favourite .


Body of An American
Rainy Night in Soho

Fairytale tops my list


Probably "Thousands Are Sailing" as the absolute favourite.
The other two would be "The Irish Rover" and "Turkish Song Of The Damned"


1 Thousands Are Sailing
2 Rainy Night in Soho
3 A Pair of Brown Eyes
Questions that shouldn't be asked shouldn't be answered

From the Bunker

Sickbed of Cuchulainn
The Body of an American
Sally MacLennane


Streams of Whiskey
A rainy night in Soho
The Old Main Drag

Honorable Mentions:
The Band Played Waltzing Matilda


Excluding Fairytale which I hope will finally be made a Christmas #1.

The Broad Majestic Shannon
A Rainy Night in Soho
Summer in Siam


1. Fairytale of New York
2. Misty Morning, Albert Bridge
3. Rainy Night in Soho

To be  honest, there are a dozen  or more  I could  have  included in  there. So many great tunes

time ticking away

Rainy night in soho
Sunnyside of the street
Sickbed of cuchulainn

Also love Tuesday Morning even though it was without Shane
canavan is the man canavan is the man ee aye adi ooh.......


Fairytale of New York
Thousands Are Sailing
Broad Majestic Shannon / Rainy Night In Soho .. just can't decide.


A Rainy Night in Soho
The Sick Bed of Cúchulainn
And the Band Played Waltzing Matilda

(Rainy night in Soho will always be there but I find eagle up tomorrow and change the other two for any of 15 or 20 more. Body of an American. A pair of brown eyes. Sally maclennane. London girl. Fairytale. Misty. Any of them.)


Sally MacLenanne

Sickbed of Cuchulainn

Streams of whiskey

I wanna have my kicks before the whole shithouse goes up in flames.

I reject the premise. There can't be only three.

Haunted by the Ghost was never my favorite song at the time, but by God it's impossible to listen to it now without shedding a tear.
