Here a tower shinning bright
Once stood gleaming in the night
Where now there's just the rubble in the hole
Here the paddies and the frogs

    I fucking love the Pogues. They are the real deal, for sure. It looks like they are touring; I can hardly believe that they have not drunk themselves to death by now..

    There seem to be two versions of this song--one with a backup vocal track and one without. Anyone know what the story with that is?
