We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: some people have too much time on their hands. But, we’re so glad they do. This is a really cool project, someone rewrote the Beatles’ entire “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” album to tell the story of the first “Star Wars” movie, then set it to clips from the movie and put it on YouTube. Even the title is perfect: please enjoy “Princess Leia’s Stolen Death Star Plans,” which is also the name of the whole project, below.
From there, it includes songs like “With Illicit Help from Your Friends” (“With a Little Help from My Friends”), “Imperial Holes” (“Fixing a Hole”) . . . and “Being from the Spaceport of Mos Eisley” (“Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite”).
Things even get a little trippy with “The Force Within You”, which is a take-off of “Within Without You”.
