"The Phantom Medley" Comedy Parody Song (1999) by Mark Jonathan Davis - 3:01 * * * * * "The Phantom Medley" by Mark Jonathan Davis & The X-Swing Fighters was released in 1999 to coincide with the arrival of Star Wars Episode One, "The Phantom Menace." This zany comedy parody song features a medley of 16 witty ditties about everyone's favorite sci-fi film phenomenon, spoofing familiar tunes such as "On Top Of Old Smokey" ("Obi-Wan Kenobi"), "La Bamba", ("La Boba"), and "Come All Ye Faithful" ("Come All Ye Force-ful"). "The Phantom Medley" pays loving tribute to the entire Star Wars universe, and is truly a tour de force. The Phantom Medley was originally sold on-line in 1999 at mp3.com on MJD's pseudo-CD titled "Naboo Road," along with a number of other Star Wars bits. It was distributed on The Premiere Radio Networks, it aired on The Dr. Demento Show, and it was extensively bootlegged on Napster. additional credits: Lyrics, Vocals, and Arrangement: Mark Jonathan Davis Additional Lyrics: Rob "Iceman" Izenberg Drums, Guitars, Keyboards and other music: Mitchell Sigman Horns: Eric Jorgenson, Mario Gonzales, Vince Denham Choir Vocals: Melissa Disney Recording Engineers: James Taylor, Rob Izenberg, Eric Caver Honorary X-Swing Fighters: Larry Morgan, Leo Quinones, Brian Setzer, Curt Piar, Ayelet Prizant, Bryce Johnson, Dominic Garcia, Tracy Austin, Helen Bartolotti, Amy Austin, T-Bone, John Mammoser, Steve Black, Matt Sigman, Deena Noroian, Daniel Lewis, Carl Caprioglio, Wendi Cartwright, Ted Myers, "Weird" Al Yankovic, and Dr. Demento.
