Movie Music (pre-)Monday: May the 4th be with you

Film Flam Flummox

Believe me, there is no more festive way to celebrate Star Wars Day than with this dance performance to Meco's hit single version of John Williams's "Star Wars Theme/Cantina Band" from the 1970s television program TopPop, broadcast on the Dutch television network Avro. One knows one is in for a singularly gleaming slab of vintage video gold when the expectedly gaudy "futuristic" space costumes are the least bizarre thing about it, for the performance runs the gamut from country line dancing and a lasso (!) solo to--my personal favorite touch, without irony--a 1920s flapper-style section to the "Cantina Band" interlude of the song. Feast your eyes and your mind, and have your life forever be changed...
