The Pogues - Fiesta

The image of British, Norwegians, Russians and other people descending upon the Spanish Costa del Sol like locusts is not a pretty one, but with the song "Fiesta" off their excellent 1988 album If I Should Fall From Grace With God, The Pogues celebrate that particular corner of the world. They do it in style though, incorporating local music and images with their own. "Fiesta" is based on a fairground melody picked up by Jem Finer, with lyrics by Shane MacGowan. It's a hell of a party song and one of The Pogues' finest moments, which says a lot.
