A great loss. Her music is sweet and beautiful. She’s so much more than just the Pogues tune.

She is wonderful.

Still, it’s England 2, Colombia nil.

I made a Kirsty fanzine a few years ago… she was so amazing, and her music is still in heavy rotation in our house.

Imagine a world where we could hear Kirsty MacColl and Neko Case sing together.

A horrible way to die. This song has poignant memories for me already, so it will carry some more.

One of my all-time favorites. Her loss still hurts. Her voice is often heard in our home.

My wife and I love her music. One of our favorites is Bad. In particular, my wife loves to quote

“And I’ve had my eyes on that carving knife
Oh you’ve been lucky so far”

Not exactly sure how I feel about that, but she says it in a cool, sexy voice so I just keep hoping my luck holds out.
