Ewok Celebration, Up in Da Club

Meco, who had hits with disco versions of music from Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back, experienced diminishing returns on his wacky novelty disco remake act, but nevertheless in 1983, he made an ’80s New Wave/dance pop “club version” of the trilogy-capping “Ewok Celebration,” that weird, nonsensical Ewok song of victory at the end of Return of the Jedi.

From the middle of nowhere in the Pacific Northwest, I contribute to the Retroist, write for trivia publications, and blog about music in a humorous fashion. I feel about "Back to the Future" the way you feel about "Star Wars." Also, I'm married and have a child (sorry ladies, orphans).
