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.
