BYT Fav Song of the Day: Monty Python

CAMP CAMP is this Sat! I’ll be playing some music and decided it was a good time to break out some novelty songs and piss off all the jocks. And probably hipsters too. I dug out some old Monty Python records and rediscovered this glorious track. Entitled Finland, it was written and sung by the great Michael Palin, although I’m not quite sure where it came from. It first appeared on the Monty Python’s Contractual Obligation Album but I haven’t ever seen a Finland sketch. Whatever, no sketch needed, this is some good stuff all on it’s own. Especially when he goes crazy on the “I quite want to be” line and the way he sings pony trekking just cracks me up so hard every time. I remember in high school this Finnish kids transferred to my school and I asked him where he was from and he said Finland and I couldn’t stop laughing. We later became friends though so it was ok.
