The Divine Comedy
Released: 9th August 1999.
A re-recording of the Divine Comedy's best song, ever. This song is basically everything that Neil Hannon does so brilliantly, witty, urbane, sophisticated and just plain genius. This is the ultimate summer song, and it should make BIG waves.
Mr Hannon has strangely decided to release a single from his first full album, even though he's into his fifth with a Greatest Hits just around the corner. The lyrics are, as ever, very good with a joke in almost every line. The tune is upbeat, catchy and should make a fantastic single. He's done better with the likes of the brilliant "National Express", but this is still excellent.
