A group with the unlikely name of Pallette-Swap Ninja has created what can only be called a geek singularity: a Beatles/Star Wars mashup that tells the story of Star Wars as a cover of the seminal album Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.
It’s got titles like “With Illicit Help from Your Friends” and “Being from the Spaceport of Mos Eisley”, this is the sort of thing that could give the right kind of nerd a grin for days.
Preview video below:
From Pallette-Swap Ninja:
“We sweat the details on both sides in an effort to do both cultural milestones justice. Writing hyper-specific lyrics that match the original songs’ cadences; reverse-engineering everything the Beatles recorded, from distorted saxophone riffs to Indian tabla rhythms; recording everything from scratch and learning as we went — well, that’s what takes five years.”
If you love this as much as I do, the good news is that there are more ways to listen to the entirety of Princess Leia’s Stolen Death Star Plansthan just watching on YouTube. If you head over to Palette-Swap Ninja’s website, you can download the entire album for free in both as both 320kbps MP3 and FLAC formats.
