Strange covers - The Divine Comedy



Neil Hannon has had a go at a few cover versions and they can be a bit hit or miss. The version of Party Fears Two didn't work for me but this one definitely does.


I was never a big fan of the whole shoegaze thing, I bought Ride's first lp but if I'm being honest largely on the basis of the cover and didn't play it that much.


However this version of their song takes it to a poppier place as is much better for it
