"National Express" is a song by The Divine Comedy. It was released as the third single from the album Fin de Siècle and reached number eight on the UK Singles Chart.
The song is based on Neil Hannon's observations of life from the window of a National Express coach. Some critics have criticised the song for "sneering" at the working classes, but Hannon has vehemently dismissed this notion.
The official video for the song examines, with some irony, the UK National Health Service from the viewpoint of a patient (portrayed by Hannon) in a psychiatric hospital who is about to undergo treatment.
