Any self-respecting fan of the space opera franchise knows exactly what today is. May 4 is officially Star Wars Day. So, may the 4th be with you in whatever you do today. If that involves dancing, definitely check this out.
Back in 1977, a disco version of the Star Wars theme ruled the charts. “Star Wars and Other Galactic Funk” from Meco topped the Billboard Hot 100 for two weeks before being pushed aside by Debby Boone’s ballad “You Light Up My Life.” That track then ruled for 10 weeks.
