A hell of a send off. If you have a deep connection to the music, this will hit deep.

Let's not forget Fairy Tale of New York, being the Christmas season and all. A holiday classic, IMO. RIP Shane.

Tuesday morning. One of my all time classics. I saw them in New Orleans decades ago and Shane was so drunk he couldn't even get out the lyrics. He got into an actual fight with band and almost caused a riot. Very short set but very on brand. I actually thought of them as Irish novelty act and had no idea they were world famous until much later. I always picture New Orleans when I hear Dirty old town. Spot on.

It was Christmas Eve, babe
In the drunk tank
An old man said to me, "Won't see another one"
And then he sang a song
"The Rare Old Mountain Dew"
I turned my face away
And dreamed about you
Got on a lucky one
Came in 18 to one
I've got a feeling
This year's for me and you
So happy Christmas
I love you, baby
I can see a better time
When all our dreams come true
They've got cars big as bars, they've got rivers of gold
But the wind goes right through you, it's no place for the old
When you first took my hand on a cold Christmas Eve
You promised me Broadway was waiting for me
You were handsome
You were pretty, Queen of New York City
When the band finished playing
They howled out for more
Sinatra was swinging, all the drunks they were singing
We kissed on a corner then danced through the night
The boys of the NYPD choir
Were singing "Galway Bay"
And the bells were ringing out
For Christmas day
You're a bum, you're a punk
You're an old slut on junk
Lying there almost dead on a drip in that bed
You scumbag, you maggot
You cheap lousy faggot
Happy Christmas your arse
I pray God it's our last
The boys of the NYPD choir
Still singing "Galway Bay"
And the bells were ringing out
For Christmas day
I could have been someone
Well, so could anyone
You took my dreams from me
When I first found you
I kept them with me, babe
I put them with my own
Can't make it all alone
I've built my dreams around you
The boys of the NYPD choir
Still singing "Galway Bay"
And the bells are ringing out
For Christmas day

Have you seen the footage of the actual funeral procession through the streets ? Amazing turn out , literally half the nation in mourning .

It gave me goosebumps.
