The Divine Comedy is a baroque pop band now based in Dublin, Ireland, fronted by Neil Hannon. Neil Hannon, Originally from Derry, has been the only ever-present member of the band, being its founder in 1989 when he was joined by John McCullagh and Kevin Traynor. Their first album, the heavily . influenced and now-deleted Fanfare for the Comic Muse, enjoyed little success though. Hannon also recently composed the music for the comedy series "The IT Crowd". The album Casanova (1996), and in particular the single Something for the Weekend led to the band's first major successes, with Neil Hannon becoming a distinctive, albeit unlikely, popstar in an immaculate suit, and always appearing the elegant dandy.
Hannon's lyrical music fires on all cylinders as well, from the cockeyed vision of romance in "The Frog Princess" (with more than one low-key French reference in both lyrics and sweeping music) to the wickedly funny and elegant "Songs of Love," detailing how boys and girls seem to be in heat everywhere while all the songwriters are stuck alone writing the. title objects in question. In the meantime, there are great one-off moments scattered throughout Casanova.

Casanova is The Divine Comedy's fourth album. Casanova is an amazing recording that still packs a dramatic punch after i've practically worn out my copy from repeated listens. one thing that i love about this band is that they are unashamed about being hopelessly romantics. in an age where loud guitars and grunge ruled the world, real feelings were about the last thing that people were singing about. it. was all replaced with disenchanted youth screaming and cold electronica that had a digital blip instead of a pulse
Casanova is The Divine Comedy's fourth album. This was helped by the release of The Divine Comedy's first single "Something for the Weekend" which reached number 13 on the charts. The two other singles released from the album, "Becoming More Like Alfie" and "The Frog Princess", charted at 27 and 15 respectively. The album is less classical sounding than the previous album, Promenade and adopts more of a Britpop feel. Its central theme is sex, around which all songs on the album centre, except "The Dogs and the Horses", which is the last song on the album and whose theme is death. The first song begins with the word "Hello" and the last ends with "Goodbye.
