A Star Wars "Phantom Menace" parody to the tune of "American Pie" by Don McLean. Yankovic ...A Star Wars "Phantom Menace" parody to the tune of "American Pie" by Don McLean. Yankovic accurately sings the entire plot of The Phantom Menace in chronological order, despite being written before the film's release. Yankovic got the plot details from rumor websites. He was unsure about Anakin proposing to Amidala, so he attended a US$500 private screening to confirm, and ended up making only very minor alterations to the lyrics. McLean was pleased with the parody, and even told Yankovic that the parody's lyrics sometimes enter his mind during live performances. Yankovic's parody not only replicates the music from the original Don McLean song, but it also replicates the multi-layered rhyming structure in the verses and chorus. George Lucas loved the song and a Lucasfilm representative told Yankovic, "You should have seen the smile on his (Lucas') face."
