You can argue it all you want to, but you’ll just look foolish doing so. If the ’60s were defined, redesigned, and pop culture prepared for the coming aural and social onslaught provided by a group of guys from Liverpool, the ’70s were similarly restructured by George Lucas and his simple little space opera. Indeed, the Beatles and Star Wars have impacted our lives in ways we can’t even imagine, especially when you consider what life would be like without them.
They Changes The Face Of Music
And It Was 50 Years Ago That Sgt. Pepper’s Was Released
So it’s kind of surreal that they’ve never clashed creatively before…before NOW, that is. The Beatles have been bouncing around since their demise at the start of the Me Decade. They’ve even found a way to enter other forms of music, as when Danger Mouse mashed up Jay-Z’s The Black Album with the Fab Four’s White one to make something Grey. And Star Wars? Family Guy would be out several dozen references without Luke, Leia, Han, and the gang.
Others Have Mixed Their Art With The Beatles
Now, in honor of both May the Fourth, and the 50 year anniversary of the release of the seminal Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, someone named Palette-Swap Ninja has taken Episode IV (A New Hope) and turned the Beatles music into the soundtrack. They’ve even reconfigured the lyrics to tell the well known story of the Rebel Alliance and its battle against the Empire. And the name? Hum along with us (to the tune of Sgt. Pepper’s title track)…”Princess Leia’s Stolen Death Star Plans.” Genius.
And Now, Another Icon Is Being Added To The Mix
And It’s Beyond Brilliant
