A British survey has named Monty Python song “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life” as the country’s most-requested funeral tune…For the first time ever, the song, from Life of Brian, topped a regular poll conducted by Britain’s Co-operative Funeral Care.
The goofy diddy took over the spot held by Frank Sinatra’s “My Way” for more than a decade. In fact, “My Way” was bumped down to the No. 5 spot.
The results of the poll came from information from 30,000 funerals held in Britain.
Har. Banned for blasphemy when the film, “The Life of Brian” first came out in the UK – it’s nice to see that ordinary folks’ sensibilities and whimsy have surpassed every negative classification assigned the movie and the music by officially conservative clods.
