Earth music reimagined in the 'Star Wars' universe (pictures)
The folks at Superfi, one of the UKs largest hi-fi and home cinema specialists, have given several popular music album covers a "Star Wars" makeover with band names like Obi-Wan Direction and the Rolling Clones.
American hip-hop group Republic Enemy's third album "Fear of a Black Planet" took the galaxies by storm when it debuted in 1990. One unfounded rumor claims that this album was the official album of the Galactic Republic before the first Galactic Empire was established.
With an album cover prominently featuring an X-wing, JEdi Sheeran's second album "X" made a splash with the Alliance to Restore the Republic as they prepared to take on the Galactic Empire in the Galactic Civil War.
If you want to immerse yourself in the music of Hoth Chocolate, the album to get is defintely "Hoth Chocolate - 20 Hothest Hits." It features all of the British soul band's best songs, and is as cool as the snowy planet of Hoth, from which the fictional group is based.
While Greedo Day has been around for a while, the punk rock band really broke into intergalactic stardom with "Wookiee," their critically acclaimed third album. This was definitely the cassette tape to have in the early days of the Rebellion.
The second studio album by British pop duo the Boba Fettshop Boys, "AT-ATually" had several hits that provided poignant commentary on several issues of the consumeristic intergalactic society under the Galactic Empire's rule.
While critics initially tried to "Shake It Off," they eventually embraced "1977" by singer-songwriter Taylor Sith. "1977" became a runaway success across all quadrants of the galaxy with hits like "Blank Space" and "Bad Blood (Bounty Remix)."
It's hard to beat the tunes of the funky Tatooine-ish band Jabba, and their greatest Hutts album "Gold" featured every single one of the group's best songs from over the years. Whether you're in a cantina in Mos Eisley or one far across the galaxy, you'll probably hear one of Jabba's songs playing on the old jukebox.
She's probably the most controversial artist in the universe, but Lady JarJar's debut album "The Shame" really took the galaxies by storm. Fortunately (or unfortunately) for Lady JarJar, the paparazzi-sa either turn and run the other way or throw their cameras at the intergalactic pop star when they see her coming down the street.
The Rolling Clones released their 18th album -- "Tatooine You" -- to huge fanfare. "Tatooine You" soared to the top of the Billboard charts, selling several million copies on planet Earth alone (sales figures for other planets have not been disclosed). The album featured one of the band's most popular songs, "Start Me Up for Lightspeed," and was the final Rolling Clones album to hit the top of the charts.
