Understand the Pogues



Coudal just reminded me of one of the best music sites on the Web, The Parting Glass, which has annotated Pogues lyrics. Totally useful if you're going to see them tonight or tomorrow. Unless you're well-versed in in Irish geography, history, and literature (I'm not) it's hard to fully appreciate a masterpiece like "The Sickbed of Cuchulainn" (listen here) without notes.
