    Even though "Fairytale of New York" is nearly 30 years old, it has never been represented here on BCN. Now we have three versions, with Walk Off the Earth performing a lovely, visually spontaneous version here below, and two other versions here, including the original by The Pogues.

Christmas video three is a lovely acoustic duo, featuring Gianni Luminati, Sarah Blackwood doing their serious version of "Fairytale of New York": Below.
