Eric Idle turns 71 today. One of the founding members of Monty Python, the funniest comedy troop of all time – no disrespect to Kids in the Hall – Idle has penned a number of classic comedy songs. Below are a few of his greatest hits.

Always Look on the Bright Side of Life

From 1979’s Life of Brian. There’s never been a better song to sing while being crucified.

The Universe Song

From 1983’s The Meaning of Life. Well this should put things in perspective for you.

Life Will Get You in the End

Here Idle stops by The Late Show with Craig Ferguson to sing a song about another one of life’s universal truths.
