"Brian Song" is the title song from the 1979 film Monty Python's Life of Brian. [1] The song which charts the growth of the Brian character to manhood was composed by Andre Jacquemin and Dave Howman with lyrics by Michael Palin. It was performed by sixteen-year-old Sonia Jones[2] with a string and brass accompaniment in the style of a John Barry film theme (the entire brass section was performed via extensive multitracking by John Du Prez). It is included on the Monty Python's Life of Brian Album and on the CD Monty Python Sings.[3] Martin Chilton the Culture Editor for The Telegraph website listed it as one of the five best Monty Python songs in 2013.[1]
