Star Wars Challenge Day 17

Favorite TPM moment...

How about any moment that has Qui-Gon and/or Obi-Wan in it?

All right, what about...I can't find a good picture from the Council scenes, but how about the beginning of the movie?

I'm kind of tired tonight for a long post, so in a nutshell I like this part because it's a Master and Padawan just being...normal.  And doing some cool lightsaber stuff, but all in a day's work, right?  In case I haven't mentioned it before, I kind of like the Jedi.  So I'm interested in pretty much anything that shows what they're like, especially when it includes Jedi by the names of Obi-Wan Kenobi and Qui-Gon Jinn.

This is going to be a short post, but I have a special edition.  You know the musical Annie?  Well, it turns out that you can take the songs, in order, and put them into The Phantom Menace with a few lyric changes and...it works.  Seriously.  So I kind of wrote the whole thing, including a script.  A few songs need to be written yet and the whole thing needs to be edited, but here is one okay song for your enjoyment.  There are a few awkward parts that need work, it's definitely not done yet, but here's my first draft.  Sung to the tune of "You're Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile," this song takes place during the Senate meeting where Queen Amidala is pleading her case.


PALPATINE
This is Queen Amidala, saying:

QUEEN AMIDALA (PADMÉ)
The bounty men
And the Hutt Clan
You know they’re both vile
But Brother,
I ask that you put Nute Gunray on trial

You think that he trades legally
This isn’t his style --
But Brother,
I ask that you put Nute Gunray on trial

Our planet is bearing
Invasion
That they bestow
My people live their lives in fear
From a dangerous foe
The Federation

So, Senator,
So, Chancellor,
Consider a while
Remember,
I ask that you put Nute Gunray on trial

PALPATINE
Ready or not, here he goes
Listen to Jar Jar
Tap his smilin’ toes

VALORUM
Ah, the gungan Jar Jar Binks.

JAR JAR
Doo doodle-oo doo
Doo doodle-oo doo
Doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo doo

They brought in the big droid army
They have lots of guile
But, brother
Our people are oppressed
Hear our request
Put Nute on

QUEEN AMIDALA (PADMÉ)

ALL THREE

QUEEN AMIDALA (PADMÉ)
We matter
So, Senator,
So, Chancellor,
Consider a while!

There you go!  Hope you're all having a good week.  I've been pretty busy but hopefully next week I'll have more time for commenting on blogs and such!  May the Lord be with you!

    Love the song! I did "Annie" this summer and your lyrics fit the song well.
