It's the last Monday of 2015! Hang in there everyone, we're almost to the new year. We hope you all had a wonderful holiday and have a safe and happy new year! Here's our penultimate post of the year.

The Song: A Star Wars Medley
Where you heard it first: Just a few days before the release of the (soon-to-be) biggest movie of all time, Jimmy Fallon got its stars together on The Tonight Show and together with The Roots to perform an a capella version of some of the movie's most famous scores. I stumbled upon this on YouTube and could not have been more excited to share it with Christina and all my fellow Star Wars nerds.
Why it’s been stuck in your head: Between the two of us, Christina and I have now seen the new Star Wars movie four times and intend on going many more times, so of course, the main title score is permanently stuck in our heads. And how could you deny the musical genius of John Williams when he scores such amazing things as Jaws, Indiana Jones, Hook, Harry Potter, Superman, Jurassic Park, Schindler's List, and Star Wars?
Why you recommend it to our listeners: If you need a fun way to break up your day, Jimmy Fallon's YouTube videos are always the way to go -- especially when you're still on a high from the amazingness that is Star Wars - Episode VII: The Force Awakens.
