72. The Pogues – The Old Main Drag (1985)

OK, so in all of the chaos and confusion in getting set up in London, I sort of let this project slide. And of course now that everyone is here, the whole “countdown” element is pretty much shot. Nevertheless, I want to finish off the list, mostly since some of the best songs I had planned are in the 29 still to come.

And so now: back to our regularly scheduled Pogue-ram.

Here’s one of my favorite Shane MacGowan lyrics, and probably — one would hope — a very different experience of London than the one you guys have been having.

Nobody sings about bodily fluids like Shane MacGowan.

Look who fixed his teeth!

    72 songs – an admirable run and easily the best blog in 2011. Well done, good sir. I salute (and miss) you. Cheers!
