Kirsty MacColl - From Croydon To Cuba... The Videos mp3 album
Kirsty MacColl might not have made many videos - and of those, she made even fewer that impacted upon any audience larger than that which was already hanging onto her every word. But still this digest of all 14 videos (plus the inevitable "Fairytale of New York," with the Pogues) stands as the soundtrack that the '80s and early '90s never had, and probably didn't deserve. A parade of gorgeous songs, heart-stopping visuals and that voice (was there any other so perfect?). From Croydon to Cuba.

Kirsty Anna MacColl (10 October 1959 – 18 December 2000) was a British singer and songwriter. She recorded several pop hits in the 1980s and 1990s, including "There's a Guy Works Down the Chip Shop Swears He's Elvis" and cover versions of Billy Bragg's "A New England" and The Kinks' "Days". Her song "They Don't Know" was covered with great success by Tracey Ullman. MacColl also sang on recordings produced by her husband Steve Lillywhite, most notably "Fairytale of New York" by The Pogues.
What was not to like about Kirsty MacColl? The late British singer-songwriter - perhaps best known Stateside as the lass who sings on the 1987 holiday classic "Fairytale of New York" by Irish rockers the Pogues - was a fine interpreter of diverse, well-chosen cover material; and she showed impressive emotional and musical range her own clever, catchy compositions. Her sweet, pliable voice made her toughest sentiments more palatable without diminishing their power; and she often used vocal-layering techniques to create Beach Boys-like harmonies from just her own singing. onto that gem of an album. And although Kirsty didn't release much new material during the latter half of the '90s, a few swell rarities from this period, such as a pretty cover of Randy Newman's "Sail Away," have been included.
