    Love. Been listening to Rabbi Manis Friedman on love. Much to learn! The man makes a lot of good sense.

    Pretty famous venue from what I understand. I lived up the hill in a house with ten feet between it and its next door neighbor. Had two families living in it. Autumns and Springs. Strange, but true.

    The Pogues are brilliant, and that is my favorite song of theirs. I remember well being told about Kirsty's death some years ago. I was really saddened, she was very talented. Believe it or not, she was killed in some kind of boating accident while trying to save her kids in the water.

    An interesting bit of trivia about the song: the writer Shane MacGowan, who is Kirsty's counterpart in the video, was born on Christmas Day. According to lore, he made a bet with the Pogues's producer, Elvis Costello, that he could write a hit song with a Christmas theme. [Cait O'Riordan, Elvis's first wife, was a Pogues member]. Guess what happened?

    Now it is the most frequently played Christmas song in the UK ;)

    It deserves a lyric post...

    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 eighteen 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

    Thank you TR, don't recall seeing the place. Shame on me. Only lived in Hermosa Beach for a few months, what can I say?
