Here's how to play "Fairytale of New York" by The Pogues on piano!

With this sheet music, you get an accurate piano arrangement of the full song which is playable, and sounds fantastic!

The full melody is included in the piano part, so it makes for a perfect instrumental (piano solo) cover.

Of course, you can also use this piano arrangement to accompany a singer, or sing along yourself - this sheet music includes a system for the singer, as well as the song's full lyrics.

Written by Jem Finer and Shane MacGowan, "Fairytale of New York" is a beautiful Irish folk ballad. The Pogues recorded it together with Kirsty MacColl, and included it on their 1988 album "If I Should Fall from Grace with God".

Released as a single in November 1987, "Fairytale of New York" became one of the most popular Christmas songs in the UK and is even considered the best Christmas song of all time.

It's certainly not your typical feel-good Christmas song - it covers issues like alcoholism and drug abuse, wrecked dreams, and comes with quite a few slurs and swear words.
At the same time, it's also a song with an honest message of love and hope, and it might just be what one needs to hear during the Christmas season.

In any case, it's a wonderful song to play on the piano - with this sheet music, you can play it, too!

If you like this arrangement, please consider leaving a review - it would mean a lot.
