20 YEARS AGO: The Divine Comedy - National Express
Both celebrating and taking the piss out of British society, this 1999 hit was released as the third single from The Divine Comedy's 6th album 'Fin de Siècle', reaching number eight on the UK Singles Chart. The naggingly catchy, almost Broadway-like song is based on Neil Hannon's observations of life from the window of a National Express coach.
