Listening to Despair Came Knocking from Hi How Are You, I noticed that the very first verses, "Despair came knocking at my door, I let it him for a while" is very close to Nick Cave┤s 1993 song Let Love In, in which he says "Despair and deception: love┤s ugly little twins. They came knocking on my door, I let them in". Despite I┤m a huge Cave fan, I┤ve never heard him saying anything about Daniel music, has anyone?

Listen to the opening few seconds of Paul McCartney's latest CD, Driving Rain, and tell me you don't think it sounds like "Despair...".

And don't worry, I won't try to tie this all in with Wings' "Let Em In"...!

They laughed when I sat down at the piano.
They didn't think that I could play.
But their laughter turned to amazement,
When I got back up and carried it away...
