Nick Winter’s “Star Wars”,..yeah…Bill Murray’s rendition has been forever stuck in my mind since 1978. Such a cultural influence on a 10 year old boy.
The hit movie from 1977 took a dramatic re-inventing from the character Nick Winter, an invention by the writers of Saturday Night Live. In the lounge lizard act so wonderfully played by Bill Murray, the audience is given a creative interpretation of what it might have been like if John Williams put a libretto to his most popular theme.
Since I’m nearing the end of this creative journey, I wanted to share my thoughts thus far. The video can be found below today’s song.
Only 26 days left…
Ah.. Star Wars!
Nothing but Star Wars!
Gimme those Star Wars..
don’t let them end!
If they should bar wars..
please let these Star Wars stay-ay!
And, hey! How about that nutty Star Wars bar?
Can you forget all those creatures in there?
And, hey! Darth Vader in that black and evil mask –
did he scare you as much as he scared me-e-e-e?”
[ turns and screams when he finds Paul the Pianist wearing a Darth Vader mask ]
My seventh winter up here! [ singing ] “Star Wars-s-s-s!”
