  • Role-Ending Misdemeanor: Shane McGowan was kicked out of the band in 1991 for his unreliability due to his crippling alcoholism. He would rejoin the band a decade later.
  • Talking to Himself: "A Pair Of Brown Eyes" has two separate narrators, both voiced by Shane.
  • Throw It In!: Kirsty MacColl was only supposed to record the guide vocal for the female part on "Fairytale of New York" - a favour to her husband, who was producing the track. But the band, who were between female vocalists at the time, fell in love with her performance.
