Back in 1976 when George Lucas was meeting with Hollywood producers on getting his movie Greenlighted, the issue of the musical score came up. George was looking for a timelessness for his movies, and Steven Speilberg recommended John Williams for the job. However, at the time DISCO was all the rage across the United States, and a few Hollywood producers recommended to Lucas that the entire soundtrack be disco. Thank God good taste prevailed. Williams; music shot Star Wars to the top, making it an iconic masterpiece, a true to heart space opera that has forever changed the world.
But.....what IF George Lucas was coerced, FORCED, if you will, to follow Hollywood's advice and have a 70's DISCO SCORE???
Well, that's what you're about to find out.
