New Music Friday

Every day I spend here at Obi-Wan’s château de filth, I am constantly surprised by what I find. No, I’m not talking about the half eaten Hungry Man T.V. dinners stuffed under the cushions of the couch or the old Silly Putty eggs in the freezer or even his old 7-11 super-hero slurpee cup collection he keeps in the dryer. No, today I found an old record collection he had stashed away in the back of a closet stuffed full of jumbo 24-packs of toilet paper. (Why does he need all that t.p.? He expecting a run?)

Anyway, I thought I’d take a gander at what ol Ben calls good music. Frankly, I was a little surprised at this one…











And if that wasn’t bad enough, I found this little beauty tucked in the back. I guess there are just some things in his past he just doesn’t want the rest of us to know.











Too bad for him. This little bad boy is going on E-Bay.

I hate to admit this, but - I had those albums... I can remember that one song ol' Ben got some airplay out of...

Padawan, there's no need to feel down.
I said, padawan, pick yourself off the ground.
I said, padawan, 'cause you're in a new town
There's no need - to - be - un-hap-py.

Padawan, there's a place you can go.
I said, padawan, when you're short on your dough.
You can stay there, and I'm sure you will find
Many ways - to - have - a - good time.

It's fun to stay at the Jed-i-Tem-ple.
It's fun to stay at the Jed-i-Tem-ple.

They have everything for padawans to enjoy,
You can hang out with all the boys ...

It's fun to stay at the Jed-i-Tem-ple.

You can get yourself clean, you can have a good meal,
You can do whatever you feel ...

Padawan, are you listening to me?
I said, padawan, what do you want to be?
I said, padawan, you can make real your dreams.
But you've got - to - know - this - one thing!

No younglings do it all by themselves.
I said, padawan, put your pride on some shelves,
And just go there, to the Jedi Temple.
I'm sure they - can - help - you - to-day.

Padawan, I was once in your shoes.
I said, I was down and out with the blues.
I felt no man cared if I were alive.
I felt - the - whole - world - was - so jive ...

That's when a Master came up to me,
And said, "padawan, walk, you must up the street.
A place there is there, called the Jedi Temple.
Start you back - on - your - way, - they will."

Padawan, padawan, what do you wanna be?

Jedi Temple

no man, padawan, does it all by himself
Padawan, padawan, put your pride on the shelf

Jedi Temple

LOL!!!
Wow!
I don't know what is more scary... That Obi-Wan actually sang that song...or that you really really remember that song.

Nicely done, BTW.

Oh my God!

Wasn't there a follow up album to Disco Doofus called Disco Dork?

Leia said...

I'll bid thirty credits!

jedisiri said...

put your pride on the shelf
*giggle*it's REALLY poetic...and stupid.

Captain Typho said...

I have to admit, I like the part in "Jedi Temple" where everyone spells out the letters with their hands.

Anakin Skywalker said...

And ya'll give me a hard time bout the boy band thing. Man, I'm totally gonna hit Yodes up for some bucks so I can use this for blackmail next time Obs tries to get me inta therapy.

Shannon said...

Yes! I LOVE Disco Doofus! Probably the only cool thing Obs ever did. But with Anakin, ya know, protecting me and all, he doesn't like it and I don't get to hear it much anymore.

Clap! Clap! Clap!

Impressive that was, Young Starbucker.

Qui-Gon Jinn said...

JJ, man, don't look at me like that.
You know that record was from Ben's post-me era.
At, like, least he admitted his doofusness.

I actually used to groove to that old Ben hit when I was a young hip guy. Well try to groove anyway. I always got pushed away from the Disco even before I could step in. Something about no Nerds allowed. Oh well...
