Queen of Hearts

Fucked Up 🇨🇦

7th June 2011

The first of three songs by bands whose names include the F word. This track from Fucked Up is shouty and furious as the character "David", but sweet and soft as "Veronica" responds. But it's always catchy and tuneful.

David Comes to Life is a "rock opera", an 18-song epic in four acts, based on a love story between the characters David and Veronica.

The official video to this track features a children's choir acting and singing the song over a backing of the record. David's part, sung by Damien Abraham on the record, is performance by the boys. And obviously the girls take the part of Veronica, performed on the record by Madeline Follin.

The embedded video above is audio-only, and features the recording as you'll hear it if you buy the record. The version with the kids is linked below.
