a short site about The Divine Comedy

I've Been To A Marvellous Party

Curiosity over The Master Himself's probable thoughts on the forthcoming Twentieth Century Blues - The Songs Of Noel Coward will only be increased by the fact that one of his most famous compositions has suddenly turned into Underworld's Born Slippy.

Responsible for this techno-fest is the Divine Comedy whose radical reworking of I've Been To A Marvellous Party forms half of a double A-sided single with Shola Ama and Craig Armstrong's more faithful, soulful interpretation of Someday I'll Find You.

Perfectly illustrating the diverse nature of the parent album, this single will be raising money for the Red Hot Aids Charitable Trust but is good enough to sell on its musical qualities alone.
