Tuesday Tune: ‘The Star Wars Theme’ By Meco
A long time ago, when Disco ruled the radio airwaves, a little movie called Star Wars was released on an unsuspecting public. One man, Domenico Monardo (Meco), saw his chance to take destiny by the horns and combined the Star Wars with the smooth funk sounds of disco to produce the following incredible aural deliciousness. You may not know, but this single even hit #1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart in 1977. If you need any more indication on my age, I remember hearing this on the radio while being ferried around town by my parents. And yes, it rocks just as much now as it did then.
