Best scene in the film, and Matty's right about Rains' voice being awesome.

6. The Album of the Soundtrack of the Trailer of the Film of Monty Python and the Holy Grail (Executive Version)



This is an absolute must for any fan of Monty Python and The Holy Grail. As with many Python products, it's just as idioticly funny as the show and films were. It includes the songs and many sketches from the film itself (The Tale of Sir Robin, The Knights Who Say Ni, etc) but not content with being just offering the soundtrack of the film itself, the Pythons included some superb new material.

The opening track congratulates the listener on purchasing the record - "The record itself is made from the very finest Colombian extruded polyvinyl. The centerhole has been created to fit exactly onto your spindle with all the precision of finest Swiss craftmanship. The audio content has been quality graded to give you the finest in listening pleasure..."

The next track is in the form of a radio report is which Palin's announcer is at the Classic Silbury Hill Cinema awaiting a performance of the film. He gives a description of the cinema, including the toilets - "standard fixtures and a 12-inch enamel wall bar with self-rinsing" - before informing us of the local dignitaries present. It takes about 5 minutes before there's actually any dialogue from the film included, the Bring out your Dead scene. Halfway through the album there's a bomb threat and patrons of the cinema are advised to leave. It's utter madness but a perfect companion to the film itself.

7. A Lesson In Logic (From The Album of the Soundtrack of the Trailer of the Film of Monty Python and the Holy Grail)

Continuing the theme, this is one of my favourite tracks from the album. A professional logician (Cleese) talks about the classic "She a witch" scene from the film. I could talk about it but it's probably best if you just listen.

So does this mean we can expect to see other soundtrack albums? Like Evil Dead II?

Hey, chin up. Only another 2993 choices before you know for sure

Probably a silly question, but have you ever heard the Python album?

I'm actually wondering that myself. I think I have them all on mp3, but it's not on my ipod, although neither is the Life of Brian album, which I know I definitely have. I have no memory of listening to it, which is either me blanking it right now or I just haven't heard it. I need to dig out my Monty Python mp3 disc and check. It's actually frustrating me, but I'm trying to resist pulling apart my collection at 3.30 in the morning

Have you got better things to do then hunt for a Monty Pythin soundtrack?

Sleep. I really needed sleep, but my hyperactive little friend, insomnia, refused. I was like "I'm fucked, I'm going to crash." and insomnia just said "Don't you want to listen to some comedy? Don't you want to stay up with me and watch Columbo? Put on the Cassavetes episode." And I just start shooting pop-culture into my veins like a light-hearted remake of Requiem for a Dream.

I want everyone to make a list like this. Always fun to see what makes someone tick. I never would have had you down as a Tom & Jerry and Muppets fan though.

Seriously though, it's a really nice list to do, because yes, we all know you love Tom & Jerry, but it's the little attention to details like Tom's scream that make it such a fun project. I really like this kind of approach, same as with Imp's hopefully not forgotten list.

9. The Girl with the Prefabricated Heart

Dreams That Money Can Buy is a film I only saw for the first time a few weeks back. An experimental surrealist drama in which a man discovers he can create dreams and sets up a business selling them to others. Each of the seven dreams in the film was created by a contemporary surrealist artists if the time and they are all very. very odd. This sequence, the second dream in the film entitled The Girl with the Prefabricated Heart, features a romance between shop mannequins.

It's here from 1.55 onwards but without the original song and score accompanying it - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ytne7Ys_qw

The first half with original music it's here. It's ace - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ytne7Ys_qw

Out of context (hell, possibly even in context) it might not make all that much sense but it really does work in the film.

That was one of the best parts of The Muppets. I love the list of things that stink at the bottom of the screen. Great choice - I'm assuming there are more Muppets to come?

I think we can guarantee that. In fact...


10. The Grouch Anthem.


The opening scene from the film Follow That Bird. A great parody of Patton, a great song and a great character, I especially love the chorus of other grouches that appear and start humming along. Oscar has a wonderful approach to life. Awesome.

I've been thinking of putting together a list of some sort for a while but I just don't have the commitment to carry it through to it's conclusion. I like reading other people's lists so I'm happy to continue just doing that for the forseeable future (I don't have the time at the moment anyway).

If I do get around to it it'll be more like MC's list of 15 than a list of 3000 though

Cops was, I think, maybe the second Keaton film I saw and this scene just really wowed me. I may have been less hasty to check out some of his other films if I'd started with one of his lesser shorts, so this was a great place top start.

The problem I'd have is that I'd never be able to put together a list in retrospect, only be rewatching - but for this you'd need to rewatch everything.
Or have a lot of gaps.

Keaton did an awful lot better in my pre-30s list than I was expecting. Safety Last was still my highest of that type, but there was a lot more Keaton than I thought there would be. And that 'wow' was a big part of it for me too.

Yeah that's why I'd be more likely to narrow the scope of the list like MC did. Maybe a top 20 Gilliam scenes or just something really non specific like 50 films I like or to be fair something like this list (not 3000 though ). Doing a top 100 or more would be agonising.

Thats why I only picked 60 films for my top list. Films I can comfortably say I love the most without having to watch every film on the planet.
