So here I am in line for a movie that’s not going to start for another 6 hours and I’m giddy like a schoolboy. Tonight I’m going to see a new Star Wars movie. I get to hear a new John Williams score. I get watch the snap-hiss of a lightsaber igniting.
After the prequels, I swore I’d never let myself get all jacked up about Star Wars again but I’ll be damned if I’m not sitting here wearing Star Wars shoes. That’s right. Shoes.
There was something special about being nine years old in 1977 and walking into that theater. It was an inflection point in my life and here I am at 47, middle aged on the outside and still nine years old on the inside.
If you are also in line or thinking about a galaxy far, far away right now, why not check out this sweet, sweet Star Wars Playlist I made in Apple Music. It’s got some choice Williams but also Star Wars music in several different genres, including disco. Yup. I just wrote “disco” on this blog. That’ll probably never happen again.
