That Time Stephen Hawking Performed With Monty Python For Record Store Day

Originally written by Eric Idle and John Du Prez for the 1983 film Monty Python’s The Meaning Of Life, Galaxy Song was re-recorded with the lyrics sung by Professor Stephen Hawking in his distinctive style. Re-released as a limited edition 7” single for Record Store Day 2015, 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. The single is in fact an extended version from Stephen Hawking’s appearance in the July 2014 reunion shows at the O2.
