Fairytale Of New York The Pogues feat. Kirsty Maccoll
That saucy minx, Katy Perry has had a hold on the No.1 spot for quite a few weeks now on downloads alone and that run looks likely to be extended with the release of the CD single this week (how retro!)
The handiwork of a dream team of songwriters and producers, namely Cathy Dennis (Kylie's Can't Get You Out Of My Head), Dr. Luke (behind huge hits by Pink, Sugababes and Avril Lavigne) and Max Martin (the man behind Britney's Baby One More Time), I Kissed A Girl is a brilliant fusion of electro and pop / rock sounds not entirely dissimilar to Sugababes' 'About You Now' and tells of the young lady's experimentation with the same sex.
If you like the sound of this, her debut album One Of The Boys, released on September 22nd, is well worth checking out too.
