Mos Isley

Episode V is my favorite, but I also looove Episode IV. The fantastic, relatively low-budget aesthetics kick ***.  Some of the best scenes:  Mos Isley (yes, Han did shoot first), the chilling destruction of Alderon, Luke practicing against the remote...just so much to love.  :)

Mos Eisley & Alderan

I do think that many aspects of the prequels are under-rated; the underlying narrative is a difficult, and in some ways, far more adult and sophisticated one, about the way that things come undone.

Back then, the story was the driver, as opposed to how much can we sell...

You haven't heard it?? Goodness, T3.

(I used to have a better quality mp3 of it, but alas)

Ahhh, Mos Eisley!



Some chap by the name of Mark Jonathon Davis had a lovely tune about that five star establishment in Tatooine's tourist precinct...



Star Wars Cantina

(to the tune of Barry Manilow's Copacabana)



Her name was Leia, she was a princess,

with a danish on each ear, and Darth Vader drawing near

so R2-D2 found Ben Kenobi, (Obi-Wan)

He'd have to put the Death Star plans into the Rebellions hands,

So Luke and Obi-Wan had to get to Alderaan

So they stopped into Mos Eisly to have a drink with Han



At the Star Wars, Star Wars cantina

The weirdest creatures you've ever seena

Here at the Star Wars, Star Wars cantina,

music and blasters and old Jedi masters

at the Star Wars.



Oona Koota Solo?

His name was Solo (Han solo), he was a pilot

with a blaster at his side and a smile twelve parsecs wide,

there with Chewbacca, he was a Wookie,

They met with Luke and Obi-Wan about the Millennium Falcon,

docking bay ninety four(ninety four), stormtroopers at the door

With a flash of Bens lightsaber, now there's an arm on the floor

The weirdest creatures you've ever seena

find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy,

we must be cautious)



His name was Yoda, he was a muppet.

Darth Vader was so bad and by the way he's Luke's dad,

Luke kissed his sister, his hand got cut off

In that galaxy far far away, Luke has had a lousy day,

Boba Fett was so mean, Jabba had bad hygiene,

Why didn't they all just relax, back on Tatooine
