(This is an audio only clip. Sorry.)
Like any self-respecting nerdy kid in the late '70s, I lived and died with the original "Star Wars" trilogy. Meco's 1977 disco version of the "Star Wars" theme blew my 6-year-old mind when it came out, but somehow his 1983 follow-up version of the Ewok song from "Return of the Jedi" didn't cross my 12-year-old radar. If it had, I probably would have had a junior nerdgasm over it. But discovering it now as an adult, I can recognize it for the atrocity it is. Give it a try and at least try to stick around to the 3:52 mark when a rap by a bad C-3PO impersonator really sends it off the rails.
