Meaningless Songs in Very High Voices

On 22 December 2009, Robin Gibb’s 60th birthday, I posted a clip of the HeeBeeGeeBees (English comedians Angus Deayton, Michael Fenton-Stevens and Philip Pope) singing their brilliant, merciless parody of the Bee Gees, “Meaningless Songs in Very High Voices”. That clip was sound-only. Clever Phil Parker has found a clip of them performing the song live in Sweden so now you can enjoy the visuals plus an intro in Swedish. I am a Bee Gees fan – yes, I am, out and unashamed – but can see that they are mockable. All together now:
The world is very very large
And butter is better than marge
And love is better than hate.
The world is very very big
And bacon comes from a pig
But it’s you I really want on my plate.

Love this - but the video has gone private. Can you re-up to youtube?
