These Are Not the Christmas Songs You Want

Okay, I of course knew there had been a rather notorious Star Wars TV Christmas special back in the day, but I swear to god -- I had no idea until yesterday there was a soundtrack album as well.

Maybe I just blocked it.

In any case, here's Meco's "R2-D2, We Wish you a Merry Christmas." From 1980 and RSO Records. And how profoundly we wish it wasn't.

Adding insult to injury/The Horror!, I am reliably informed that a teenaged Jon Bon Jovi makes his recording debut on this track (as part of the children's chorus).

Oh -- and did we say Merry Grimble to all?
