IT’S A CONLANGUE TRANSLATION *_______________*

(Lyrics here.)

Luke the Son of Anakin – Nick Jack Pappas & co.

Today in parodies that are significantly better than expected…

“Luke the Son of Anakin” by Nick Jack Pappas, feat. Roger Mulligan, Lauren Burbank, Kent Axell, Alex Ubokudom, Dave Ebert & Maria Christina Perry

Come Rescue Me – Kari Maaren

Please, someone, come rescue me.
Tell me my destiny.
Help me to simply slide
Into being what I am meant to be.

This may be the single most insightful piece of Star Wars filk I’ve ever heard.  “Come Rescue Me,” by Kari Maaren

Polska från stjärnorna – Mattias Frisk

Our dear faned wanted to know more about space polskas, so here is “Polska från stjärnorna” (“Polska from the stars”), taking the main Star Wars theme and the Imperial March, mashing them together, and then arranging them in the style of a Swedish polska tune.

Technically, this isn’t really filk, since the performer Mattias Frisk likely never has been involved of filk or science fiction fandom, but it very much is music-making in a filk mode.

It Suits You – Kirby Krackle

The Force Awakens Musical: Rey

So @magickedteacup came and pointed out that she’d written and recorded most of a Star War: The Force Awakens musical-as-fanfiction and WHY DIDN’T I KNOW ABOUT THIS EARLIER IT’S SO GOOD OKAY

You can read and listen to the whole thing here, and I highly recommend that you do – and don’t skip the instrumental “intermission,” it’s actually one of my favorite parts, because apparently surprise highly-abstracted variations of the Imperial March are my jam.  Honestly I listened to that track three times just to hear that quote (or…paraphrase, I guess).

Also, the droid’s got her own theme song.

Underneath the Mask – Beth Kinderman

And here’s to all the rebels and the ones who never settled
They were with me all along
They wandered undercover as I hungered for a lover
And I wondered what when wrong

I haven’t posted in ages, and I feel bad about that.  Have a Star War!

“Underneath the Mask,” by Beth Kinderman.  I got to sing with Beth at Marscon this year, she’s great.  Anyone who ends up at a convention in the Midwest somewhere, I strongly advise looking for her.

Sung by Beth Kinderman, featuring Justin Hartley on drums and Dave Stagner on electric guitar and synths.

The Force is the Force – Carla Ulbrich

@axonsandsynapses sent me this song and all I could say was “oh fcuk,” and I still think that’s the most appropriate response

“The Force Is The Force” by Carla Ulbrich, to the tune of “A Horse Is A Horse”…of course

so @paticmak made this lovely drawing/animation of “poe singing space folk songs to the other resistance pilots” and then @soemily activated the SPACE-SIGNALING BEACON OF WRITE A SPACE FOLK SONG

this one turned out like 50% space folk song, 50% blindsided by poe dameron feelings. (surely you, the internet, understand.)

(reminder that this song is good and the chords are here)

Come Ye Knights – Star Wars

Come you knights and come you pilots
With your ships and sabers shining
Come and stop your children’s crying
Come and join the rebel queen

“Come Ye Knights,” by Sheila Willis, performed by Technical Difficulties

@sci-fantasy saw my plight and sent me a better-quality recording of this song, and I’m very grateful.  Anyway, I’ve posted three version of this song now.  It’s a good song, and it’s topically relevant.

Chords and lyrics are here

The Saga Begins – Weird Al Yankovic

beggars-opera:

I would just like to remind everyone that regardless of your opinion of the Star Wars prequels, they did produce one of the greatest parody songs of all time, which by the way was written entirely before the movie came out using spoilers from pre-Google 1990s fansites.

I’m sure everyone’s heard this song, but I had no idea it was written before the movie came out, and that is amazing.

Jedi Drinking Song – Brobdingnagian Bards

Exactly what it says on the tin, a Jedi Drinking Song from the Brobdingnagian Bards.
