May the 4th Song of the Day: Arab Strap – Ben Kenobi Theme

May the 4th.

Time to get your nerd on.

Today is international celebrate Star Wars day. I think I’ve seen 4-5-6 at least ten times each. It captured my imagination as a kid and who didn’t pretend they had a light saber at some point.

Arab Strap is a Scottish indie act perhaps best known for being the subject of the Belle and Sebastian song Boy With the Arab Strap. They did release a few good albums as well. Anyway, it’s clear that either Aidan Moffat or Malcolm Middleton were big Star Wars fan because they did this cover of the famous John Williams tune for their Cherubs EP. It seems more westernish then the original. Still, very good.

Check it out.
