music in a foreign language intentionally misinterpreted/"translated"/transcribed into English

Sat Sep 08, 2018 6:48 pm

Unfortunately, the one at https://priuschat.com/threads/lyrics-to ... ted.91152/ is dead. It intentionally misheard the Soviet anthem as "I need an enema" + a whole bunch of other funny stuff.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qFDT2L5bPFI is a good one I just learned of (even though it's apparently 5+ years old). I believe the music is from ep 1 of Star Wars (Phantom Menace). Corn on the cob... cola... grilled kabob.. soda... Xena and so on. :D I wonder what John Williams thinks of it.

I've always pictured Williams writing music to:

" Star Wars! This movie's called "Star Wars!"

But what is a "Star Wars" and what's that sound like???"

Hahaha. He does write music appropriate for each scene. That's why you can see movie footage playing on the screen.

I've seen some behind the scenes stuff for various composers, including likely some for Star Wars movies before.

Yeah, I know, but sometimes reality is less funny then fiction, believe it or not.

Did Jar Jar have his own theme phrases? I don't remember.

I posted the video in the OP elsewhere and someone replied that John Williams apparently has never seen a finished Star Wars movie. :o :shock:

I looked it up and sure enough, there are articles the supposedly confirm this:
https://www.businessinsider.com/star-wa ... es-2016-12
https://www.mirror.co.uk/tv/tv-news/sta ... ry-9497097

I didn't know this until now.
