|The Pogues singles chronology|
"If I Should Fall from Grace with God" was a single released by The Pogues in February 1988, from the album of the same name If I Should Fall from Grace with God (released in January 1988). It followed the band's Christmas classic, "Fairytale of New York", but did not enjoy the same widespread success, stalling at Number 58 in the UK singles Chart. The video for the single was filmed at a live show.
The faster-paced 1988 recording found on the subsequent single release was heard beginning October, 2010 on U.S. commercials for the Subaru Forester, featuring a woman shuttling around hockey-playing children, while the lyrics of the first two verses (which constitute the song's main chorus) are heard prominently for the duration of the advertisement.
