Star Wars Day: “The Saga Begins” by Weird Al Yankovic

Even though Episode I was something of an abomination, it was still a big part of my childhood, because to a ten-year-old, it still seemed pretty cool at the time. These days, I might not be able to sit through Phantom Menace without cringing, but I still have nothing but love for Weird Al’s parody of Don McLean’s “American Pie,” which tells the story of Episode I, including a chorus of, “My, my, this here Anakin guy, may be Vader someday later, now he’s just a small fry…” After all these years, I still know all the words.
