John Williams is the man

He visto en emezeta un video que me ha encantado, lo he repetido dos o tres veces y quiero compartirlo con ustedes. Se trata de un chico canadiense de 21 años, Corey Vidal, que ha hecho una versión a capella de varias bandas sonoras del más grande creador de bandas sonoras, John Williams.

Corey se ha currado una letra que hace un pequeño repaso a la historia de Star Wars. Ya saben, besar wookies, patear droides, Constantino Romero diciendo «Luke, yo… soy tu padre«. La letra la pueden pillar aqui, aunque en el blog emezeta, Manz la ha colgao. La pondré debajo del video.

Que decir de John Williams, es a las bandas sonoras lo que Arguiñano a la cocina. Lo que Pavarotti a la ópera. Lo que Alonso a la fórmula 1 y lo que George Bush a los hijos de puta. Me explico:

Si me haces la siguiente encuesta, «Para los gremios que te voy a nombrar, dime un representante rápidamente».

  • Cocineros      –> Arguiñano
  • Tenores         –> Pavarotti
  • Pilotos de F1 –> Fernando Alonso
  • Hijos de puta –> George Bush

Pues eso, todo este rollo para decir que John Williams es buenísimo. Tanto, que si buscas una banda sonora en internet, la que sea. Como si es la banda sonora de «Pepi Lucy Bom y otras chicas del montón» y pones «pepi (etc) John Williams», la encuentras a la primera. John Williams es sinónimo de BSO.

Despues de este desfase, les pongo el video, que es espectacular.


[Close Encounters of the Droid Kind]
You must use the force (repeat ad nauseum)

[Raiders of the Lost Wookiee]
Long time ago, far far away (repeat)

Kiss a wookie, kick a droid
Fly the falcon through an asteroid
Till the princess is annoyed
This is spaceships, it’s monsters, it’s Star Wars, we love it!

Come and help me, Obi Wan
X-wing fighter and a blaster gun
Dance with Ewoks, oh what fun!
This is spaceships, it’s monsters, it’s Star Wars, we love it!

[Super Han]
Get in there you big, furry oaf
I couldn’t care less what you smell
I take orders from only me
Maybe you’d like it back in your cell
Your Highness, your worshipfulness, your highness, your worshipfulness

No one cares if you upset a droid
(nobody cares if you upset a droid)
That’s because droids don’t tear your arms out of socket.
(nobody cares)
I suggest a new strategy: let the Wookie win
That’s because nobody cares if you upset a droid.

[ET the DiscoTerrestrial]
Now we listen to Luke whining:
One more season… One more season… One more season… One more season…

I was gonna go to Tashi Station for power converters
Now I guess I’m going nowhere.
It just isn’t fair.

[Jaws: the Wookiee]
Wooookie (repeat)

Someone move this walking carpet (repeat)

Kiss your brother, Kiss your brother (repeat)

Princess Leia
Well I guess you don’t know anything about women.

Who’s your daddy? (repeat)

[Jurassic Darth]

Luke, I’m your father
(That’s not true!)
It is useless to resist
(My hand!)
Come with me my son, We will rule
(I’ll never join you!)
Search your feelings it is true

So you have a twin sister
Who Obi Wan was wise to hide
(Is that Leia?)
If you will not turn
Then perhaps she will
Give in to your hate
You are mine

Long Long Long Time ago… Far Far Far Far Away

Long Long Long Time Ago, Far Far Far Away (repeat)

Kiss a wookie
Kick a droid
Fly the falcon
Through an asteroid
Till the princess is annoyed
(She’s annoyed!)
This is spaceships, it’s monsters, it’s Star Wars, we love it, it’s true

Episode 3
Coming to you
In 2005

So Let’s go
(go go go to the movies)
Stand in line
(buy buy buy me some popcorn)
Cause it’s al-
(please I’d like extra butter)
most the time
(Join the dark side…)
May the Force be with you all

John Williams is the man
