Now you could listen to Stephen Hawking’s version of Monty Python’s ‘Galaxy Song’ played with his electronic pipes.

Eric Idle and John Du Prez were the writers of ‘Galaxy Song’, which had appeared in the film of “The Meaning of Life.” Last year, the comedy troupe put on a live performance in London with this song as the main theme. They would then defeat Professor Brian Cox’s fight against the inaccuracies of the ‘Galaxy Song,’ however by singing the song; Stephen Hawking would cut to him, saying that “I think you’re kind of pedantic person”.

With computerized vocals, he then sang his version of Monty Python’s ‘Galaxy Song’:

“Just remember that you’re standing on a planet that’s evolving

And revolving at 900 miles an hour

That’s orbiting at 19 miles a second, so it’s reckoned

A sun that is the source of all our power”
