Forgot to post these over here - my last two mashups which both have a Star Wars theme (although started 5 and 10 years ago, so actually before the latest film was even planned!)
This was started in 2005 as part of the ill-fated Boot In 60 Seconds project, but never really worked, was a bit of a car-crash. It was semi-released as part of that mix, and other places, but this is the final version.
It combines Spoonful of Sugar from the Disney movie Mary Poppins (topical!) with John Williams Imperial March theme, as Orbital and 2 Bad Mice as the droids you aren’t looking for!

Spin that glitterball death star! In time for the new film (although completely by accident, long before Lucas was a twinkle in Disney’s eye, these mashups were started 5-10 years ago) here are the first of two Star Wars mashups.
Star Wars Gurls is Meco’s Star Wars goes space disco via California Gurls with Katy Perry and Snoop Dogg.
I’ve always had a bad feeling about this, it’s been a real disturbance in the Force over the years and probably still is a bucket of bolts, due to strange minor bits in the Meco track. In the end I had to use the Melodyne trial to force the acapella into key…Use the Force Luke! Well we know mashups shouldn’t be forced, but I’ve always wanted to release this, so treat it as a bit of fun. Still will make the Kessel Run in 12 Parsecs!

Appropriate to end on something complete silly…Would love to say doing these has rekindled my love of mashups…but no, although fun to see these finally see the light of day, it’s also reminded me what a faff it is.
So that’s me out – bye! Thanks all for listening over the years.
