Paroles Titanic - Amateur Transplants
The song touches on the British trait of stoicism with the " stiff upper lip " spirit in the face of adversity, and became immensely popular. It reached No. Whilst trying to come up with a way of ending the film Monty Python's Life of Brian , Eric Idle wrote an original version of the song on a Gibson J guitar using only jazz chords he learnt from a course by Mickey Baker. However, Michael Palin noted in his diary for 16 June that during a script meeting, "Eric's two songs—'Otto' and the 'Look on the Bright Side' crucifixion song—are rather coolly received before lunch. While practising during a break in filming, Idle found that it worked better if sung in a more cheeky manner by a character of his called "Mr Cheeky", which in turn was based on the film's cockney lighting crew. This new version was used in the film and became one of Monty Python 's most famous compositions. The song appears at the end of the film.
Lyrics: Amateur Transplants. Other. Titanic.
This retelling by playwright Tom Smith brings the power games of the French aristocracy, to 21st century London and Brighton. Frequent nudity, simulated sex, alcohol and pop music drive the story along as characters jostle for position on the admittedly intimate stage. With Kay on the piano for the majority of the evening and Biswas on the microphone, once they begin the 90 minute set of their very own unique comedy it is hard to stop laughing. The entertainment is ongoing and consistent. And once proud Valmont, even to the last, cannot admit to himself that he has fallen in love with one of his prizes, valuing lust and triumph over weaknesses such as love and compassion.
