That song always makes me feel so melancholy... something about the Celtic sound, combined with the memory of Kirsty MacColl, who died so close to Christmas in 2000. Your post prompted me to pick up a copy of Kirsty's compilation CD, "Galore", so her heirs thank you for the 50 cents or whatever you helped them earn ;-)
