The Divine Comedy “No One Knows” live

Posted August 23rd, 2007 by eric

Neil Hannon is almost as famous for his covers as he is for his own grandiose, idiosyncratic pop as The Divine Comedy. This 2004 cover of Queens of the Stone Age’s best single is expertly chosen, as Hannon’s baritone contrasts so severely with his falsetto that it makes for a jarring and exciting combination. He is backed by an enormous band…strings, stand up bass, percussion. Not only does the orchestration show off Hannon’s rich vocal style, but it also showcases the compositional genius of the original. Outstanding.
