A young Bill Murray spices up Saturday Night Live to sing a sexy rendition of the ‘Star Wars’ theme
Nick The Lounge Singer, one of Bill Murray’s most popular recurring characters during his tenure on Saturday Night Live, just happens to deliver a terrifyingly sexy rendition of the Star Wars theme.
Murray’s character, who would always sing his heart out with undeniable gusto, often changed his surname to suit the season… hence why ‘Nick Winters’ would enter what was called the ‘Powder Room’ apres-ski bar located at Meatloaf Mountain.
Accompanied by his piano player, played by Paul Shaffer, Nick Winters rolls around the bar and interacts with members of the audience. “Oh, that cast makes me so sad,” Nick says to a woman with a broken leg and played by Gilda Radner. “Don’t it make my brown eyes… don’t it make my brown eyes… don’t it make my brown eyes… bluuueee,” he croons.
At one point, Murray decides to contribute with his own addition to the famous John Williams piece, changing the lyrics to: “Star Wars/Nothing but Star Wars/Give me those Star Wars/Don’t let them end!” much to the amusement of the crowd.
