Today we’re celebrating Monty Python for no reason whatsoever.

We’d gladly wish one of the Python guys a “Happy Birthday” but none of them were born on this day.

Quite frankly, this article is exceptionally random.   We rank the Top 5 Monty Python Songs because we have access to this website and can post stuff on it.

Enjoy.   And now for something completely different…

  • "Knights Of The Round Table"

    From the brilliant Monty Python And The Holy Grail…how can you not get up for this raucous tune?

  • "The Meaning Of Life"

    From Python’s film The Meaning Of Life…this song is one of Eric Idle’s best.

  • "How Sweet To Be An Idiot"

    From Monty Python Live At The Hollywood Bowl…this classic was performed by Neil Innes…an honorary member of Python who wrote some great music for the comedy group.

  • "The Lumberjack Song"

    From Python’s legendary television show…this classic is one of the funniest songs ever.

  • "Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life"

    Another Eric Idle classic…this song…from Python’s biblical epic The Life Of Brian…is what the troupe was all about…funny…thoughtful…awesome.
