Divine Comedy mailing list

If you just want to know about latest releases etc. then this is probably not the mailing list for you. Topics of discussion range from Divine Comedy gig reviews to chocolate and the pros and cons of coathangers.

To subscribe, send the message subscribe europop (or subscribe europop-digest if you'd prefer the digest version) in an e-mail to (in the body of the e-mail, not the subject line). I must warn you that this mailing list is nothing to do with me, and I cannot be held responsible for its erratic behaviour.

Neil Hannon's New Year's Resolutions 1997

  1. Read The Divine Comedy by Dante
  2. Find a place to live that I actually like
  3. Write less songs with animals in the title
  4. Grow five inches -- in height
  5. Get better looking each day
  6. Befriend more pop stars
  7. Remember other people's birthdays, not just my own
  8. Be gracious in defeat when beaten at scrabble by those of a far inferior intellect to myself
  9. Make feeble attempts to learn French and fail like every year
  10. Make my girlfriend happy
