  • 'Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life' – The Unofficial England Football Anthem

    Monty Python have announced the re-release of their classic and much adored single 'Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life' with a brand new verse fitting for this year’s World Cup, should England fail to triumph. The single is out now and available for download on iTunes.

    Written by Eric Idle for the final sequence of Monty Python’s second feature film 'The Life of Brian' (1979), 'Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life' is probably the best-known and most popular Python song and has become established as a favourite sing-along at both funerals and sporting events.

    Its cheerfully stoic message found particular resonance with football fans and was initially adopted as a chant by fans of Sheffield Wednesday at the dawn of the 1990s, before becoming part of the repertoire of England fans experiencing deflating failures at major international tournaments.
