A TRIBUTE TO CARRIE FISHER WITH A PRINCESS LEIA INSPIRED SONG

While there are many songs that reference Star Wars, I can’t think of a better Princess Leia inspired song besides Blink 182’s “A New Hope.” I’m not the best in these situations but I briefly met Carrie Fisher just a few months ago on assignment for New York Comiccon and I realize how lucky I was to do so. This was one instance where I knew that the parents were just as excited to meet her as the kids. Thank you for the memories Princess, and know that you will continue to put a smile on people’s faces for generations to come!

BLINK 182 “A NEW HOPE”

I’ve got her in my head at night when I go to bed
And I know it sounds lame, but she’s the girl of my dreams

And of course I’d do anything for her, I’d search the moons of Endor
I’d even walk naked through the deserts of Tatooine

Princess Leia, where are you tonight? And who’s laying there by your side?
Every night I fall asleep with you and I wake up alone

And even though I’m not as cool as Han, I still want to be your man
You’re exactly the kind of Alderranian that I need

But when you were available, I was drinking Colt 45’s with Lando
I was hanging out in the cantina on Mos Eisley
