Darkside Lightside by the band Ash from the album 1977. Based on Star Wars. The album's title was partially inspired by the year the film was released. The album opens with the sound of a TIE Fighter, and ends with the track "Darkside Lightside", the title of which is a Star Wars reference, and which climaxes with a choral version of the Star Wars theme. The band also covered "Cantina Band", as the b-side to the "Girl From Mars" single. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1977_(Ash_album)
