The Divine Comedy closed their Electric Picnic set with this acoustic version of My Lovely Horse

The crowd wanted it. The crowd got it.

THE DIVINE COMEDY’S Neil Hannon famously put together the theme tune for Father Ted, as well as providing one of sitcom’s most iconic songs with My Lovely Horse.

So when they pitched up to play Electric Picnic on Friday night, they knew there would be calls to bring out the classic.

So they obliged by finishing their set on the main stage with an acoustic version, and everyone loved it
