Covers # 75 The Divine Comedy

So while we're here, here's his cover of one of the most remarkable songs of all. The original was by The Associates, one of the most remarkable bands. Hannon actually makes a pretty good job of it, sensibly not attempting to make an attempt at Billy Mackenzie's peerless vocal acrobats and bringing in what sounds like a tuba to ground the song in an oom-pah band backdrop. I hope this brings a smile to your face.
