Rey and Kylo Ren fighting the Praetorian Guards to...

Yesterday I wasn't feeling too well. I had a terrible stomachache and couldn't sleep. So, I did what most normal people do in such circumstances. I was searching Twitter for interesting things to read and see.

I found this epic thread where this person @rachlikesbands set the legendary fight between Rey and Kylo Ren and the guards (from Star Wars - The Last Jedi) to different songs.

I decided to join the fun.
Now, I know, I know... I said... things... about The Last Jedi. But hey, that is not going to stop me from admitting that parts of this movie are awesome. Especially when said parts are set to some of my favorite songs.

Take a look at this, for example.

This should be the actual music video to "I'd Do Anything For Love (But I Won't Do That - Join the Resistance)" by Meatloaf. I love Meatloaf. And I love this song.
This is my Reylo tribute:

And here's another classic (well, a classic to me anyway) that works surprisingly well. I love this song, it reminds me of some the happiest months in my life. Here, it's an awesome soundtrack to this fight.

I'm also a closeted KISS fan (yeah, who would have known!), so I just had to do it to this song:

And just for fun, a short version of Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance". I had to chop and splice the song a little to make it work.

And finally, for J-pop fans, here's AKB48 with "Heavy Rotation", which, surprise surprise, also worked nicely without any major surgery to the song.

Another song that is in my top 10 favorites of all times (what can I say, I'm old).

And finally, this is not so great, because the sound got all wonky when uploaded to Twitter, but here Bon Jovi with "It's My Life".

Somebody asked me, because I made these, if I'm a fan of Adam Driver. Ha, no I am not. Until the Star Wars reboot, I didn't even know who he was. He does look good shirtless, though, that much I can say.
Anyway, Kylo Ren is a spoiled brat not-so-secretly lusting after Rey, and consider these songs as a premonition of what's to come in episode IX.
