Princess Leia's Stolen Death Star Plans

I found some serious catnip that will be playing all evening long while I work. It's a mashup of the Beatles and Star Wars. To be specific, the album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band is used to tell the saga of Luke, Leia, Han, and the droids as they battle Darth Vader and the Empire. This is darned clever.

Dan Amrich and Jude Kelley of Palette-Swap Ninja redid the entire Sgt. Pepper album in Star Wars lyrics. You can hear the whole album of songs in this playlist. I was tickled with "AA Twenty-Three" (to the tune of "When I'm 64") and "Luke is in the Desert" (to the tune of "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds"). If you don't listen to anything else from the album, you've got to hear the last track, "Reprise/A Day in the Life of Red Five."  -via Metafilter

Very interesting--and to think I almost didn't click! I wonder if this appeals mostly to a very specific generation of late Boomers and early Gen Xers?
