I can tell you with a good deal of confidence that the songs that will endure, based purely upon what the Internet asks this server for, are:
Fairytale of New York
And the Band Played Waltzing Matilda
Love You Til The End
Body of an American
Whiskey in the Jar
Dirty Old Town
Rainy Night in Soho
Whiskey You're the Devil
Thousands are Sailing
Those are the ten most visited song pages on this site over the last three years, so it seems likely that those are the songs that will endure. Obviously some of them are just people looking for lyrics to a song they once heard (Whiskey You're the Devil comes to mind). Never the less, it's interesting to see what songs the Internets come to pogues.com to get information about.
But all of that aside - come on guys. Feel free to disagree, but stop with the "you're an arsehole" posts. Once or twice is heat of the moment point making. Repeating it is just being a belligerent thug. Play nicely in the sandbox or don't play at all. Thanks.
