MUSICAL MONDAY! STAR WARS A CAPELLA! OBI-WAN/QUI-GON VS. DARTH MAUL

MUSICAL MONDAY PRESENTS:
STAR WARS A CAPELLA! DUEL OF FATES!


I love a film, television, and video game themes and sound tracks. I love a Capella. And heck, despite all my issues with the original trilogy and the Phantom Menace, the music from the prequel trilogy has some worthwhile music. The single greatest song to come out of the trilogy that fits the operatic battles is John William's Duel of Fates. That song alone makes certain scenes in the prequels nearly attain the emotional resonance of scenes from the original trilogy.

For some odd reason, hearing Matt Mulholland's a Capella tongue-in-cheek scat-speak rendition of the song, complete with light saber noises, makes me appreciate the song again. That really is the sign of a good parody. A good parody can help you appreciate your favorite things in a more comedic light and this is no exception. Enjoy and make sure to check out Matt Mulholland's other videos and subscribe

P.S. Darth Maul is nearly as bad as Qui-Gon Jin and Boba Fett. These three make up the triumvirate of overrated Star Wars characters.*Dives behind cover and throws up force shield*
