I’m listening to Sinead O’Connor and Shane MacGowan duet on the song “Haunted”. It’s a great song – she comes across beautiful and clear and melodic against his ruined rasp of a voice, and it works as a nice love song, somewhere between Shane’s doomed romances and her own, slightly more uplifting songs about love.

And then I remember the last time I heard of the two of them in connection was a couple of years back when I heard Bob Geldof interviewing Shane, and they were discussing the dildo Shane had given Sinead for Christmas.
