L’album sur lequel figure “Lady Of A Certain Age” n’a jamais déserté mon iPod depuis sa sortie. De là à en déduire qu’il m’est indispensable, il n’y a qu’un pas, que je franchis en piétinant au passage les orteils de ceux qui jugent Neil Hannon (monsieur Divine Comedy) trop verbeux ou chichiteux. Il ne connaît peut-être pas le minimalisme, mais il fait avec une grâce, une verve et un détachement blasé seulement égalés par Jarvis Cocker. Et je ne vais pas m’étendre sur ses talents de parolier, d’arrangeur et de compositeur, cette chanson s’en charge à ma place.
