Song Notes: Neil Innes was one of the principle songwriters (along with Vivian Stanshall) of the Bonzo Dog (Doo-Dah) Band, though he's probably most known for his work with Monty Python (he's the minstrel in Monty Python and the Holy Grail and he performs "How Sweet To Be An Idiot" in Monty Python Live At The Hollywood Bowl; he also popped up from time to time in other Python projects) and The Rutles (he was Ron Nasty, and wrote all the songs). This is from the How Sweet To Be An Idiot album (released in its entirety along with a bunch of bonus tracks on CD as Recycled Vinyl Blues). Neil Innes' solo work wasn't typically quite as silly as the Bonzos and a bit more poppy—though, that's not to say that his solo stuff is wholly serious, nor that the Bonzos didn't have exquisite examples of pop songcrafting, either. It's just that he's moved the "Funny/Pop" slider farther to the right. - Rev. Syung Myung Me
