Is Jackie The Ghost of Christmas Future ?

And yet another sighting/airing of the The Wolfmen and Jackie, Is It My Birthday? on BBC six music - this time on the Chris Hawkins Show - Chris touched on a subject that's been batting about at Wolfmen Central for a while now

Should 'Jackie' be released as a Christmas single?

All the codes and conventions would seem to be in place: the arpeggios chiming like church bells, Sinead's saintly vocals - the swirling snow flurry of the backwards riffing, and lyrical references to angels

For a refresher have a listen here

And then decide what do you think - would Jackie make a Christmas cracker of a single? The vote button's on the side bar - let us know by registering your vote..
