"'Grand piano' are the first two words spoken by the singer and writer Vivian Stanshall on a famous seventies album – what are his last two?"

I'm sure you all know the answer! For a bonus point, give an alternative answer?!

The answer given (and accepted) was "Tubular Bells", which is correct in reference to the 1973 release...Ommagest is correct in reference to the 1976 "Boxed" release with the alternative version of the Sailor's Hornpipe, which ends with the words "...1973, goodnight".

We can of course debate whether "Goodnight" is one or two words...and if only one, then how many words in "Nineteen seventy three" ?!

The brandy makes most of the monologue into one long word if you think about it.
