This question is about the song "Christmas in Heaven" which is a song in the Meaning of Life film.
Who sang that song? Graham Chapman or Eric Idle? In the film, Graham Chapman appears to be singing the song, but the voice can be either Graham of Eric. Ah! Am confused!

I'm pretty sure it's Eric. After all he just about composed every song ever. Even Queen songs. Remember Bohemian Rhapsody? Yep, him.

it was graham. i am still afraid of his terribly white fake teeth in the film ^^

eric's voice is clearly different from graham's btw. i can't explain in which way because i lack the vocabulary ^^ but it's 100% different

So it was Graham! See I asked because I bought the Meaning of Life dvd a while ago, and in the special features there was Eric Idle version of Xmas in Heaven, and it sounds so alike the version of the film.
Now that it is confirmed that it is Gray, I always thought that it was his best vocal performance since Medical Love Song.
Graham singing BoRhap? That would've been interesting but he can't now coz he is in an urn.

Yeah, I think it was Graham.

Speaking of Eric though, has anyone else seen him on his tour of North America??? My god, he is absolutely hilarious live... The show absolutely rocked.

Nice guy too, (although only the 6th nicest Python) and he signed autographs afterwards, and I took his picture...
