This acoustic version of ‘Jedi’s’ ‘Ewok Celebration’ is glorious

ewok celebration

I’ve never been a fan of those wretched Ewoks or their “Ewok Celebration” song from Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, which was virtually unavoidable on the radio in 1983, some 14 years before it was scrubbed from the special edition (perhaps one of the few good things to come out of the re-release). However, I may be forced to soften my position on “Yub Nub.”

Why? Musician Chris Nandor, aka Pudge, has released a performance of “Ewok Celebration” that’s almost … heartfelt. Seriously, it may be good enough to make you shout, “Allay loo ta nuv!”

OK, maybe not. But it’s still pretty good.

i despise the replacement song in the special edition. it didn’t even occur to me that anyone but Lucas thought it was a good idea to scrub it.
