The Galaxy Song by Monty Python

29 Aug

Today I am grateful to Monty Python for all their legacy, and in particular for this absolutely genius song. It lifted my spirits on so many occasions.

Inga Duncan Thornell

And pray that there’s intelligent life somewhere up in space, ’cause there’s bugger all down here on Earth.

Do you remember this one?

The professor I am TA for posts this video with the NASA slideshow as a “congratulations card” for the students at the end of each term. Written by Eric Idle for Monty Python‘s 1983 film, The Meaning of Life, this song has a life of its own.

    Fabulous song! Thanks for posting it. Hadn’t heard it in a long time.

      You can say that again. When I worked in one horrible Girl Scout camp, the film and that particular songs were my saviours. And recently I heard a street musician in a nearby town sing it.
