Haunted video


2 of the Ireland's bright stars that stood in the shadows of U2's rise to global fame. They peaked out a few times- especially Sinead's Saturday Night Live gig. Although it seems Macgowan (most notably of the Pogues) is mostly in a drunken stupor, he is considered by many the best songwriter from Ireland of his generation. He has a distinct look and vocal style. Something akin to throwing Bob Dylan into a blender. In this video, Shane seems to be going for the Elvis Costello look. Sinead has got to be one the best female vocalists period. She keeps her hair short but her vocals can be hauntingly beautiful.
Oh yeah, Macgowan wrote this song. I think its for a soundtrack to some film.
