Monday Morning Diversion: Bon Jovi, R2-D2, and Christmas

By Marcus Gilmer in Miscellaneous on Dec 14, 2009 4:20PM

It's a gloomy, cold Monday morning. The stress of the holidays is in full swing and that holiday break for many of you is still over a week away. Fear not, we've got something that, even if it doesn't make your day better, will at least distract you from the drudgery of your Monday morning staff meeting: Jon Bon Jovi singing a Christmas Carol to R2-D2. The song "R2-D2 We Wish You A Merry Christmas," from 1980's Christmas in the Stars: Star Wars Christmas Album, is (allegedly) the "first professional recording" made by the man who would later sing about Gina and Tommy and the prayer they lived on. If you really want to capture the moment for all eternity - or at least to listen to over and over on your iPod - you can download an MP3 of the song here. Otherwise, enjoy the Youtube'd version below.
