It may have been originally released in 1980, but this official Star Wars Christmas album would be the geekiest recording of any holiday season. Featuring R2-D2 and Anthony Daniels, the voice of C-3PO, it's got such idiotic novelty goofs as "What Can You Get a Wookie for Christmas (When He Already Owns a Comb)?" And though the narrative threads are bound to induce fevered eye-rolling, that's sort of the point. (Pop-culture bonus points are also awarded for the vocal presence of John Bongiovi, who would later become Jon Bon Jovi.) In a year filled with kitsch, this straight-faced, nine-song collection is on another level entirely. You'll either laugh your head off or weep with geek nostalgia.
