SONG OF THE WEEK #10: The Divine Comedy - "Tonight We Fly"

It’s not as if The Divine Comedy is a very little known band or something, but I’m convinced that more people should know Neil Hannon's music. Simply because it is so great, so accessible, so adorable. Check this one out, for instance, “Tonight We Fly” off Promenade (see  recent review). It’s hard for me to think of another song that marries sadness and happiness so beautifully and so convincingly. The melody is inspirational, plus some of the most heartfelt, affecting lyrics in a pop song.
