What if, instead of hiring John Williams to compose the score for Star Wars: A New Hope, George Lucas had brought on Marvin Hamlisch to turn his space opera into an intergalactic musical? The latest episode of Bad Lip Reading gives us a look at what might actually be the only way A New Hope could be improved.

BLR’s “It’s Not a Moon” ranks up there with Williams’ “Imperial March” when it comes to earworm potential, and despite throwing most of the plot of Star Wars out the window, the nonsensical dialogue in this parody still isn’t as cringe-worthy as what Lucas put in the scripts.
