Songs About People # 202 Catherine the Great

The Divine Comedy remains a very good thing. This is their, (well Neil Hannon really) new sing from forthcoming album Foreverland. He manages to shoehorn some quite incredible lines in there rhymes branier with Lithuania. Follows it up with, 'She had great hair. And a powerful gait.' name-drops Voltaire. Then actually comes out with the line, 'She looked so bloody good on a horse. That they couldn't wait for her to invade.' Sure, it's completely pointless but many of life's small pleasures are and on a day when Britain could be voting to change its entire political and economic destiny, frankly it's a welcome diversion.
