Python’s tribute to Stephen Hawking

Not that I want to function as free advertising for them, but earlier on facebook I came across an ad for Monty Python Sings, a new album of Python’s songs, and I was pleased to see that it included Stephen Hawking singing The Galaxy Song. You might remember that Hawking did a version of the Galaxy song on his communication aid for the 2014 Python Reunion. That they’re now including his version on their new album seems to me really quite touching: it’s a catchy, upbeat song which also makes a comment on the human condition; to have Hawking  sing it seems quite an apt tribute to the  now late professor. He is still one of my rolemodels, and for the Python guys to choose to remember  him in this way seems to me very decent of them.
