Fiedler was kinda known for playing paddy fingers with the arrangements of "pop" tunes if he didn't like them. Wouldn't have surprised me if he did it with Star Wars. Jaws sounds very different too - much more percussive and faster.

I have on vinyl a recording of the Boston Pops playing "I Wanna Hold Your Hand" with Fiedler conducting. At the end, everyone in the orchestra starts singing "ya ya ya!" at the top of their lungs. It's hilarious!
