The Divine Comedy - Everybody knows that I love you video - Neil Hannon is great as usual. The Divine Comedy - Generation Sex. Neil Hannon's (AKA The Divine Comedy) video for the single Generation Sex. The Divine Comedy - Becoming More Like Alfie. Becoming More Like Alfie is taken from the 1996 album Casanova. The Divine Comedy - The Summerhouse. From 1994 album "Promenade". In my humble opinion, one of Neil Hannon's best songs.

The Divine Comedy-Secret History (Best of the Divine Comedy, 1999). Nov 1999) The album also includes many other great tracks (my personal favourites being Song's Of Love (the theme from Father Ted), In Pursuit Of Happiness, Certainty Of Chance, Too Young To Die. I barely knew the Divine Comedy before getting this album and was pleasantly suprised by the diverity of the album
