Despite our loving the original song, the first 30 seconds is all anyone ever really needs to activate the nostalgia centers in the brain. What surprised us about the organ version is how enthralled we were with the process and just how into the song Dudouet gets for his YouTube audience. He may only be cranking the organ, making sure the perforated paper roll doesn’t jam and occasionally changing the key of the music, but that’s still quite a performance. Dudouet’s arrangement of the John Williams song prove he’s quite the Star Wars fan and his nerdy proclivities shine through elsewhere too. In 2016, he arranged the theme to Monsters, Inc.
