Top Ten Monty Python Songs

One of the most iconic symbols of my childhood is Monty Python, which is ironic given that most of their stuff was released either before I was born or when I was far too young to either understand or remember. However, Dad was a Python fan, so I grew up watching films like Life of Brian and The Search for the Holy Grail. I then married a man who can quote large passages from various sketches, so I developed a taste for those aspects of Monty Python that my father either didn’t enjoy or chose not to show me.

I will, in the future, be posting a Top Ten list of Monty Python Sketches, but for today, I would like to concentrate on my ten favourite Monty Python songs. Many of you will notice the absence of The Lumberjack Song. Despite this song’s popularity and the fact that it is present on nearly every list of Monty Python songs I have seen. I have chosen not to include it here as I find it rather meh.

A couple of the songs on this list will be considered unacceptable by today’s standards and I held an internal debate as to whether they should be included. In the end, I decided to go with it since they really are my favourites and I could not find anything that I like enough to replace them. Besides, I can handle a little hate mail!

Now that has been said, here is my top ten list of Monty Python songs, from ten to one:

Number 10

Penis Song

Number 9

The Silly Walks Song

Number 8

Always Look on the Bright Side of Life

Number 7

Number 4

Number 3

Every Sperm is Sacred

Number 2

Philosophers Song

Number 1
