Nerds Unite!!!!

Ok so I may be late (don’t be surprised, you should know this by now) but I just stumbled across major awesomeness in my search for this week’s Tuesday Tune In. The king of late night, Jimmy Fallon, featuring The Roots and the cast of Star Wars: The Force Awakens collaborated for an amazing medley of the Star Wars franchise’s iconic music. To be honest I’ve been on a Star Wars kick since I watched the movie and this just added to my current indulgence in all things Star Wars.

Now Fallon is pretty notorious for his musical collabos with various artists (peep his take on Queen’s We Are The Champions ft. Ariana Grande, Usher, and the like) but to have Lupita Nyongo, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega and a few other surprise cast members (my girl, Gwendoline Christie from Game of Thrones) this medley of tunes is definitely worth geeking out over.

The scene opens with that famous line found in every Star Wars movie with Fallon and house band, The Roots, following closely behind to treat us all to just over a minute of awesomeness and nostalgia.

The flow of this all a Capella and all vocalized piece was well put together and the editing is awesome, as per usual for Mr. Fallon’s team. But the real genius is in the fact that the actors are singing the portions in which their characters appear. Did I just give a spoiler? Whatever. Don’t care. It’s amazeballs!!! I have to be honest though, I had to check IMDb, the movie site, to see who some of these guys played (the makeup in the movie was that legit) so I didn’t get confused. Once I got it  though, I appreciated Lucas films and this franchise all that much more.

All in all I give Fallon’s Star Wars tribute of 9 out of 10 for sheer nostalgic properties and for including the droids, which, in my opinion, are the best characters.

Check out Fallon and friends’ Star Wars medley below and let us know if you geeked out as much as I did.


Pop by next week for another Tuesday Tune In and Let The Force Be With You.
