The SWU's Holiday Countdown: December 10th


By: Dominic Jones

We featured a couple of fan made Star Wars/Christmas music pieces, now how about some official ones!  That's right, in 1980 Lucasfilm released the Christmas album Christmas in the Stars.  The album featured Anthony Daniels reprising his role as C-3PO in many of the songs and Ben Burtt providing the sound effects for R2-D2 and Chewbacca.  The album is also famous for featuring the professional singing debut of John Bon Jovi(!) in the song R2-D2 We Wish you a Merry Christmas.  The album was subsequently re-released in 1994 on CD.  You can find the complete track listing  (including links to where you can listen to the songs) below:
  1. Christmas in the Stars
  2. Bells, Bells, Bells
  3. The Odds Against Christmas
  4. What Can You Get a Wookiee for Christmas (When He Already Owns a Comb)?
  5. R2-D2 We Wish You a Merry Christmas
  6. Sleigh Ride
  7. Merry, Merry Christmas
