At The Indie Disco

Oh right, d’r is een nieuwe cd van The Divine Comedy. Getiteld “Bang goes the Knighthood” (hier op Spotify, of hier tijdelijk op VPRO’s luisterpaal).

Neil Hannon strikes again. Stilaan de de Randy Newman van onze dagen. Schitterende lyrics, in combinatie met vanzelfsprekende muziek. Van ontroerend naar hilarisch, en weer terug.

Zeker eens te proberen, zelfs als ge The Divine Comedy niet kende, is het lichtvoetige “At The Indie Disco”. Wat mij betreft het grappigste nummer sinds “Take the Skinheads Bowling” van Camper van Beethoven. Een ode aan het tegeldansen.

De lyrics:

We go out to the Indie Disco
every Thursday night
Dance to our favourite Indie Hits
until the morning light

At the Indie Disco,
The Indie Disco.
At the Indie Disco,
Yeah!

We got a table in the corner
that is always ours
Under the poster of Morrissey
With a bunch of flowers

We drink and talk about stupid stuff
And hit the floor for Tainted Love
You know I just can’t get enough

At the Indie Disco,
The Indie Disco,
At the Indie Disco,
Yeah!

Give us some Pixies and some Roses
and some Valentines
We dance forever
Give us some Blur and some Cure
and some Wannadies
We dance forever
And now we’re moving to the beat
And staring at each other’s feet
I wonder if she fancies me

At the Indie Disco
At the Indie Disco
At the Indie Disco,
Yeah!

And when it’s over and I’m freezing
on the night bus home
I think of her and I sing the words
to my favourite songs
She makes my heart beat the same way
as at the start of Blue Monday
Always the last song that they play

At the Indie Disco,
the Indie Disco
At the Indie Disco,
Yeah, Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah yeah, uhu, ah.
At the Indie Disco
the Indie Disco
At the Indie Disco,
Yeah!
