I occasionally drive through Burbank, California, and often pass a pretty normal-looking Burger King on Victory Boulevard. But this is no ordinary Burger King: it’s the same one Marty McFly skateboards past in the opening minutes of Robert Zemeckis’ timeless time travel film Back to the Future, and every time I pass the fast food spot, I loudly hum Alan Silvestri’s classic theme song. Hey, we all celebrate our favorite movies in our own way.
The Huffington Post points out that guitarist Gregory Johnson celebrates this film in a bit more creative fashion than I do: he took Silvestri’s iconic theme and re-imagined it on an acoustic guitar. Kick on your flux capacitors, make sure your time circuits are on, and pretend you’re revving up to 88 miles per hour in a DeLorean as you listen to Johnson’s excellent cover below:
