Lumberjack song! by MissTrixiB on 19 January 2003 4:17am
 
For anyone that get's VH1, 'The Lumberjack Song' was in the top 40 of TV Guides Top 100 Rock Moments (or Rockenist Moments....whatever). Just thought I'd share ;) How can I connect that subject to travel? Not a clue:)

While we're on the topic of the Lumberjack song, I'm curious as to why Eric Idle is usually the one to perform it on stage and not Michael. Not to say that Eric doesn't do a good job because he does, but to me, Michael will always be the lumberjack!! *LOL*

Michelle :)

Rugged, handsome.....definate Lumberjack material.
I don't have an answer, perhaps it was all in the timing of the skits when performed on stage. Perhaps it's because Eric is the more musically inclined of the Pythons. Michael will always be MY ideal Lumberjack too.

Michelle (LOL), I was always under the impression that the reason Michael wasn't always the lumberjack live was, as Michelle (LOL, sorry, I HAD to, Trixi!) mentioned, because of the timing of the sketch. Could be wrong, though!

Hey, Trixi, was this actually a program on VH1? Will it be broadcasting again? Or was it just something mentioned in the TV Guide. You have me a bit confused. (Not hard to do, I admit!)

It's actually a program on VH1 with a list comprised by TV Guide. It IS a bit confusing. You know VH1....it will be repeated about 30 more times (this month alone, I'm sure). It's actually a mini series hosted by Molly Shannon (gag!) and Eric Idle is in it quite a bit too.

(it appears that you and I are posting at the same time again Rusted. I, however, am off to bed. Had a bit of a late night last night and am STILL recovering. Goodnight ;) )

Hello Michelle and Michele - it's Michelle again! (Hmmm, this is starting to sound like the "Bruces" sketch!)

Yeah, it's probably due to the timing of the skits as you suggested. Perhaps they could revise their schedule in future, if and when the Pythons do another stage performance! *Hehe*

This thread reminded me that........hopefully(!) Michael will be doing his lumberjack thi-ng! (couldn't help that, sorry) on the beeb or itv soon. When it as the George concert, someone said he did that sketch then, and the show was recorded to be shown in february.
Ello (already getting blank tape. Roll on february!)

Just to conferm on this, yes, it IS because of the timing of the sketches. The church police offten came before the lumberjack song, so that's why Eric sung it insted of Michael. But I can honestly say, when Eric attemps to sing songs origanaly sung by Michael, Mr. Idle comes in a close second ;)

Thank you for clearing up the VH1 thing, Trixi, I'm going to snoop around to see if it'll be on again soon. :O)
(I know what you mean about late nights- didn't get in here last night because I was in another chat from 8PM to 2AM!)

IS the George tribute concert supposed to play this February? I know the tribute CD is coming out on the 25th, but it'd be cool if the concert is aired next month as well!!

Eric does do a good job as the Lumberjack, but he's missing the hilarious eyebrow movement that Michael always has going on... :O)
