Disco Star Wars

After Meco Monardo created a hit disco version of the Star Wars soundtrack in 1977, the next album he planned was Meco's Time Machine. He explained, "We'll visit eight different time periods of Earth's history and observe events. Those events will be translated into music. We'll start before the dawn of man, in prehistoric times, and we'll end in New York in 1980."
But it doesn't seem like that album ever came out. Instead, Meco spent his entire career producing disco versions of movie soundtracks, including Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Star Trek, and An American Werewolf in London.
And don't miss his Ewok Celebration single, featuring a rapping Ewok.
Plenty more of his stuff on YouTube, if you're interested.
