As Sara “Name That Tune” Schaefer well knows, Christmas music is not my forte, but if a gun was pointed to my head and somebody asked me what my favorite Christmas song was, without a doubt, my answer would be Fairytale of New York by The Pogues. Having said that, it has recently come to my attention, that Bloodshot Records recording artists The Scotland Yard Gospel Choir covered this tune on a thing called the Basement Tapes Sessions (which kinda sorta looks like Daytrotter). You may recall that SGYC recently played at Union Hall as the opening act for Brooklyn’s very own Bling Kong.
