Even Star Wars’ Imperial Stormtroopers Need Love

Bara Heiða is a folk/pop band that hails from Reykjavik, Iceland, and their new music video, Stormtrooper, follows a (what else?) Imperial stormtrooper who is left behind in a strange world and finds love.

The band describes the song as a metaphorical one for opposites attracting:

The background story of the lyrics is that of a Stormtrooper getting deserted on an unknown planet. There he meets a woman and they fall in love. Later, he has to return to battle and she is left behind, with their child.

The song is a metaphor for two people who are fundamentally different. One being idealistic and of the sky while the other is practical and of the land and how they can only be together for a short while, before drifting apart.

There’s hope for all of us.
