Random Jukebox: The Divine Comedy’s Something For The Weekend

It’s Friday, so rev up the jukebox and do us all a favour.

One of my very favourite compilation albums is Secret History… The Best of The Divine Comedy. Released in 1999, it’s the perfect round up of singles and best-known songs from wordsmith extraordinaire Neil Hannon’s previous five studio albums on the now defunct Setanta label. (A limited edition even features a bonus disc featuring beyond quirky selection of curios and covers, including David Bowie’s Life on Mars?, Kraftwerk’s The Model, and Talk Talk’s Life What You Make It.)

The Carry On Casanova innuendo of Something For The Weekend was The Divine Comedy’s first hit, reaching No.14 in the UK in 1996.

Come on, you know you want to…
