Over to Phil for the playlist!
“So, I’m a massive Star Wars fan and it is a great honour to compile this mix. I think there’s something for everyone here.”
1. Star Wars Main Theme – John WilliamsHow else could you start this playlist? That music and the scrolling text, this is how it’s meant to be!2. Cantina Band – John Williams and the London Symphony Orchestra
This little tune always makes me smile. I want to go to the Cantina and hangout with Han Solo and Chewie.
3. Chewbacca – Supernova
From the Clerks soundtrack, a tribute to everyone’s favourite Wookie! This is a fun party tune.
4. Fett’s Vette – MC Chris
A nerdcore tribute to everyone’s favourite intergalactic bounty hunter. There wasn’t enough Boba Fett in Star Wars.
5. Shredisode IV - Anchorhead
A bit of metal, Star Wars style. The vocals are quite amusing.
6. Lapti Nek - The Max Rebo Band
True fans of the series will remember the original tune played in Jabba’s palace before Lucas destroyed it with that horrible CGI scene :C
7. Scotch Vader -DJ Scotch Egg
For anyone who hasn’t heard of him; DJ Scotch Egg is a Japanese chiptune artist that plays music on a customised gameboy! This might fry your brain my Padawan.
8. She’s In to Star Wars – King
I’m not that into this to be honest. I’m kinda running out of Star Wars themed songs…
9. The Empire Strikes Back – Demigodz
Rapping over the ‘Imperial march’, now that’s kinda cool. And I dig the wookie sound effect.
10. Yub Nub (Ewok Celebration) – John Williams
THIS is the original ending to Jedi, the little Ewoks tune fills me with nostalgia. Why George? Why did you change it!?
