Lazy Sunday - Divine Comedy


Lazy sunday and top of the shuffle pile this week is a track Neil Hannon. Now I have a bit of a love hate relationship with the Divine Comedy, a too arched eyebrow can easily turn from knowing intellect to smart arsed caricature. I'm also a bit suspicious of songs where the chorus relies a tad too much on "babababas" (Try Teardrop Explodes "Wilder" if you want the ultimate babababdababadada lp)..... but this is great, the lyrics are nonsense, but a nonsense that seems full of the deepest meaning.
And what is not to love about a song that ends
"I'm the Catcher in the Rye
I'm the twinkle in her eye
I'm Jeff Godlum in the Fly
Well who am I"
