First things first, May the Fourth be with You all.
May 4th is Star Wars Day, the annual day in which fans celebrate all things related to the franchise set in a Galaxy Far, Far Away. Whether you're watching the movies, shows, celebrating with Baby Yoda, or all the above, you're also going to need a great soundtrack to go along with it. And there's no better soundtrack to throw on than Spotify's 'Best of Star Wars' playlist.
As expected, streams of John Williams' legendary score, as well as the tracks that appeared in other movies and shows, such as Ludwig Göransson's songs created for The Mandalorian, skyrocket on May the 4th. Don't believe us? Spotify has the numbers to prove it.
Per Spotify's official stats: "On this day last year (May 4, 2020), [Spotify] saw more than a 530 percent increase globally in streams for the “Best of Star Wars” playlist, with a 729 percent increase in the U.S. alone."
Not only that, the streaming service reported that "global Spotify users have created more than 613,000 Star Wars playlists, 78,000 “Yoda” playlists, and 30,000 Mandalorian playlists."
