I also find that Pogues song about Christmas in the drunk tank can get to me.
Yeah, that's "Fairytale Of New York". It's dark depending on the angle you judge the lyrics by, but mostly it's satirical with a bit of dark humor, pathos and obscenity all wrapped up in a jaunty, sing-a-long chorus. Shane MacGowan is quite the poet.
