Music on Monday: The Bright Side of Life

I pretty much loved all* of the slightly insane, pop music-o-riffic Olympic Closing Ceremonies last night, but nothing more than Eric Idle from Monty Python singing”Always Look on the Bright Side of Life.” In fact, I was so excited that I hopped off the couch and headed over to my desk so I could add “Monty Python Sings!” to my iPhone – which caused me to miss the rollerskating nuns that accompanied his performance.

(I know. Rollerskating nuns. How could I have missed that?)

I’m sure the IOC, or NBC, or someone else is keeping the Closing Ceremonies clips off of YouTube, so no nuns for me here on Ye Olde Blog either. But, there is an official Monty-Python sanctioned singalong video, so that will have to do. Watch, enjoy, and see if you can avoid the urge to whistle along.


* The only exception was when Liam Gallagher and his new probably-as-awful-as-Oasis band came out to sing “Wonderwall,” which is quite possibly the worst song from the 90s not performed by the Smashing Pumpkins.

    I know you will throw your hands up in despair, but I really do not remember that tune!! I was NEVER a Monty Python fan and never heard of Eric either. Sorry….

    BUT, on another topic, I absolutely LOVE the portraits of your kitties on Instagram this morning. Their bodies (heads) haven’t caught up to the size of their ears. TOO CUTE 😊

    Ugh, Smashing Pumpkins. They suck, too.

    Sarah, you and I finally agree on something musical: Smashing Pumpkins suck.

    Joanne: you and I agree on other musical things, so this just makes me like you even more. 🙂

    I thought the whole thing was weird…and the dead people singing part was a whole different level of strange. And I’m not a Monty Python fan so…sorry.
