Various Artists – Pulp Empire OST

Well, we’ve already had one fake soundtrack album this month, so how about another. This one is taken from a film that has never been officially released because it is a fan edit of The Empire Strikes Back. Now, fan edits are a a curious beast. They are commercially released films that have been modified by an editor to add or remove scenes, re-order the film or even edit multiple films together to make something wholly original. 

One of my favourites as well as one of the most original was the fan edit of The Empire Strikes Back which was made to look as though it had been directed by Quentin Tarantino. That means it incorporates some of the tropes the director is famous for, such as telling the story in a non liner style, incorporating animation for some sequences and most importantly for us, the soundtrack was reworked. Gone is the classical score of John Williams. In its place is a mix of songs taken from Tarantino films, as well as some that were taken from his favoured era of the 60s and 70s. 

This edit is truly awesome and if you can find, I recommend you give it a watch. The soundtrack is also brilliant and that is why I was inspired to create a version of it. If you can find a copy of the film, it is well worth checking out. If you can’t just enjoy the awesome music that has been edited in. In fact, there was so much good stuff that I found that it needed to be a double to do the amount of good music justice.
