Monday music spot: "I need a hero" as music for the climax of "The Rescue," (Mandalorian season 2 Finale)
I've decided that "I need a hero" works even better as the background music to the climax of season 2 of "The Mandalorian" than it does for the climax of "Shrek 2" for which this version was recorded.
The Mandalorian and his friends were trying to recue the kidnapped Grogu (a.k.a. "Baby Yoda") but they're now trapped on the bridge of an Imperial Cruiser and about to be attacked by an entire platoon of "Dark Trooper" battle droids. (Earlier in the episode the Mandalorian barely survived a fight with just one such droid.) Then a single X-Wing arrives ...
I am assuming most of those with any interest in Star Wars or indeed science fiction will already have seen "The Mandalorian." If you fall into that category - even if you hated the prequels and/or the most rec)ent films -but have not watched "The Mandalorian," you should, though in that case it might be wise not to watch this clip.
