Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

In the great tradition of made-up holidays (oh, today is also No Pants Day), May The Fourth Be With You may be the most insular, but have you ever seen the look on a Star Wars fan's face when someone tells them they've never seen any of the movies? Or when they say they've only seen Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace? The horror, the horror.

John Williams' recurring theme song in The Empire Strikes Back has been reinterpreted into infinity over the years across genres and continents, especially by budding guitarists with video cameras. Here are a few of our favorites.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
