“Always Look on the Bright Side of Life” is a comedy song written by Monty Python member Eric Idle that was first featured in the film Monty Python’s Life of Brian and has gone on to become a common singalong at public events such as football matches as well as funerals.
The song touches on the British trait of stoicism with the “stiff upper lip” spirit in the face of adversity, and became immensely popular. It reached number three on the UK Singles Charts, and the 2012 Summer Olympics closing ceremony in London featured a live performance of the song by Idle.
