Stephen_Hawking-Singt_Monty_Python_Galaxy_Song

Vielleicht könnt ihr euch noch erinnern, dass auf der Monty Python Reunion-Tour ein gewisser Professor Stephen Hawking einen Gast-Auftritt hatte, dort performte er den “Galaxy Song” aus Meaning of Life. Diesen Song kann man nun pünktlich zum Record Store Day als 7″-Vinyl und als Download auf iTunes käuflich erwerben. Und als ob das nicht genug wäre, gibt es dazu auch noch ein Musikvideo. HIT!

The song, which is the title track to “Monty Python – The Meaning of Live”, was originally written for the 1983 film, “Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life”. It has been re-recorded with the lyrics sung by Professor Stephen Hawking.

Written by Eric Idle and John Du Prez, the song is an intricate and informative lecture on the enormity of the Universe fashioned into a bewitching and, above all, highly amusing pop song.

“Galaxy Song” was previously included on the 1989 album “Monty Python Sings”, and included in the 2014 reissue of the album, “Monty Python Sings (again)”, in its original form – sung by Eric Idle – to coincide with Monty Python’s record breaking “Monty Python Live (mostly) – One Down Five to Go” run of 10 live shows at The O2, London. On film during the live shows, Professor Brian Cox berated the scientific inaccuracy of the “Galaxy Song » lyrics before Professor Stephen Hawking knocked him to the ground. Hawking then began reciting the “Galaxy Song” lyrics as he lifted off to journey through outer space. It is this unique rendition of “Galaxy Song” which is now available as a single.
