·    大家都知道披頭四(The beatles),但是被稱為喜劇中的披頭四 — Monty Python,對台灣的朋友們可能比較陌生。 Monty Python  1969 年時,在 BBC 開始電視喜劇而成名。

老酥在此偶也 “聯想” 一下,台灣 “老一輩” 的觀眾比較熟悉的,日本的 ザ・ドリフターズ(The Drifters)。

看到日文,大家可能不大知道是啥碗糕,但如果說 “八點集合”,或甚至說大爆笑的志村建,大家(可能還是像老酥偶醬年紀的人)可能就 “很熟悉” 了。台灣的 “綜藝節目” 受到他們的影響大的不得了,甚至到現在的節目,到處都可看到他們笑劇的影子。

比較一下 Monty Python 與八點集合,到底誰仿誰,就很難說了。因為根據維基,這日本團體也是於 1969 年,活躍於日本!https://ja.wihttps://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/ザ・ドリフターズ

 

好了,歷史介紹就到此吧!請大家欣賞老酥偶選的歌!

 

Monty Python 是專門寫且演 Satire comedy諷刺喜劇)的一個 group,他們有一部劇,叫 Monty Python's life of Brian。這喜劇在 1979 年上映,遭保守人士批評為褻瀆基督。因故事說,Brian 這個人,與基督同一天生,又住在基督的隔壁,最後被錯當成彌賽亞釘在十字架上!

 

Always Look on the Bright Side of Life 這首歌就是為 Brian 要被釘十字架前作的。雖然,有一點諷刺 (甚至褻瀆)的味道,但話說回來,也沒錯。常說,一個瓶子裝一般的水,樂觀的人說半滿,悲觀的人則說半空。我是屬於(至少努力)半滿的,您呢?請聽這首 Always look on the bright side of life。(主唱的人就是作曲者,也是 Monty Python 的主要領導人,後來也因其成就被封為爵士的 Eric Idle)

它的歌詞如下

Some things in life are bad
They can really make you sad
Other things just make you swear and curse
When you're chewing on life's gristle
Don't grumble, give a whistle
And this'll help things turn out for the best...
And...

...always look on the bright side
of life...
(Whistle)

Always look on the light side
of life...
(Whistle)

If life seems jolly rotten
There's something you've forgotten
And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing
When you're feeling in the dumps
Don't be silly chumps
Just purse your lips and whistle
- that's the thing.
And...always look on the bright
side of life...
(Whistle)

Come on.

Always look on the right side
of life...
(Whistle)

For life is quite absurd
And death's the final word
You must always face the curtain
with a bow
Forget about your sin - give the
audience a grin
Enjoy it - it's your last chance
anyhow.

So always look on the bright side
of death...
(Whistle)

a-Just before you draw your terminal breath...
(Whistle)

Life's a piece of shit, when you look at it
Life's a laugh and death's a joke, it's true
You'll see its all a show, keep 'em laughin as you go
Just remember that the last laugh is on you

And...
Always look on the bright side
of life...
(Whistle)

Always look on the right side
of life...

C'mon Brian, cheer up

Always look on the bright side
of life...

Always look on the bright side
of life...

Worse things happen at sea you know.

I mean - what have you got to lose?
You know, you come from nothing
- you're going back to nothing.
What have you lost? Nothing.

Always look on the right side
(I mean) of life...

what have you got to lose?
You know, you come from nothing
- you're going back to nothing.
What have you lost?

Always (Nothing.) look on the right side of life...

Nothing will come from nothing ya know what they say?
Cheer up ya old bugga c'mon give us a grin!
There ya go, see!

Always look on the right side of life...
(Cheer up ya old bugga c'mon give us a grin! At same time)

There ya go, see!
